Following the announcement that The Raid (2011) director Gareth Evans had landed backing for his new movie Apostle, news now arrives via The Hollywood Reporter that Dan Stevens (The Guest) will be starring in it.
Apostle follows a man heading to a remote island to find his missing sister. She has been kidnapped by a religious cult, which is demanding a ransom for her return.
But the commune has reckoned without the investigative abilities of our hero, who starts to dig deep into the secrets and lies of the group. We wondered if this would mean less of the frenetic, creative action Evans brought to screens so well with his previous work, but while it might not be on the same level, having the man who kicked ass in The Guest (2014) means we can certainly expect something...
Evans should have the cameras rolling in March in the UK. As for Stevens, he will be bringing a real animal side of his nature out for Bill Condon's (The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn) new live action Beauty And The Beast, which is due to arrive in the UK on 17 March.
