Zendaya, along with Jake Gyllenhall and Ansel Elgort have been cast to star in an upcoming crime thriller, Finest Kind.
Finest Kind is a crime thriller about two brothers (Gyllenhaal and Elgort) who strike a dangerous deal with a crime syndicate that draws them into the Boston underworld. As pressures mount, sacrifices must be made and bonds—between brother and brother and between father and sons–put to the test.
Producer Gary Foster said: “Brian and I have dreamed about making this film together for a long time. Brian’s directorial vision and powerful screenplay which draws on his experiences growing up in the tough town of New Bedfrod, Mass., has attracted a stellar cast lead by Jake, Ansel and Zendaya. I couldn’t be more thrilled!”
David Kosse, President of STXinternational said, “Reteaming with Imperative and 30WEST is another great opportunity to bring quality filmmaking to the international marketplace. Brian Helgeland is the perfect director to capture the grit and emotion of this phenomenal cast. It’s a great collaboration on every level and I could not be more delighted to be working alongside such an exciting group of filmmakers.”
Former Disney star Zendaya has made a successful transition into a film career, starring in Spider-Man: Homecoming as well as the Oscar contender The Greatest Showman. She’s set to star in the Spider-Man: Homecoming sequel as well as the thriller A White Lie, on Anita Hemmings, the black woman who passed as white to get into Vassar College.
