Jeremy Irvine ("War Horse," "Great Expectations") has signed on to star in Jean-Baptiste Leonetti's thriller "The Reach".
Stephen Susco penned the script based on Robb White's 1972 novel "Deathwatch". The story follows a hunting enthusiast (Michael Douglas) who hire a guide (Irvine) for a trek through the desert.
The already tense relationship turns worse when the hunter kills a prospector, and then becomes a merciless torturer to the guide - putting him through painful mental and physical tests in the middle of a sweltering desert.
Douglas and Robet Mitas are producing. Filming begins in New Mexico at the end of the month.
