New news arrives via Deadline that he is set to make the leap into films with his directorial debut, Come And Find Me, and has landed Aaron Paul (Breaking Bad) to star.
The busy former Breaking Bad actor (who just yesterday set up a new project with Hulu) is aboard to play a man named David, whose girlfriend goes missing. Then to add to that, he realises she has been lying to him and isn't who she was pretending to be, so he redoubles his efforts to find her.
With his leading man in place, Whedon is set to start the cameras rolling in Vancouver next month, working from his own script.
Paul, as mentioned above, will star in a new series for Hulu and will next be seen on the big screen in John Hillcoat's (Lawless) crime thriller Triple Nine (out 18 September) and The 9th Life Of Louis Drax, which has yet to announce a release date. He is also in drone thriller Eye In The Sky and will have a role alongside Dwayne Johnson (Fast & Furious 6) and Kevin Hart (Ride Along) in action comedy Central Intelligence, due out next year.
