He will next be seen in Joachim Rønning in Espen Sandberg's (Kon-Tiki) Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge – known as Pirates Of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales in the US – and now Australian actor Brenton Thwaites (Oculus) is lining up another role that has him meeting paranormal activity. News arrives via Deadline that he is set to star in supernatural thriller Ghosts Of War.
Eric Bress (The Butterfly Effect) wrote the script and will direct the movie, which is about a group of war-weary World War II soldiers who are assigned to defend a French château as the conflict winds down. Once held by the Nazis, it is already a forbidding place – a feeling intensified by a supernatural presence that haunts the chambers, one that could be more terrible than any enemy soldier. Thwaites' character will be a leader and strategist dealing with battle fatigue who is called into action to help his troops.
As a director, Bress is no stranger to supernatural themes, as he is the man behind movies such as Final Destination 2 (2003) and The Butterfly Effect (2004), which he himself is rebooting later this year.
Pirates Of The Caribbean: Salazar's Revenge, meanwhile, is due to arrive here on 26 May.
