Damian Lewis, the redheaded star of “Life” and “Band of Brothers,” has joined the cast of another Santana project, the action-thriller “Man Is Wolf to Man.”
Inspired by true events, “Man Is Wolf to Man” is set in French Guyana in 1934. A group of foreign prisoners escape from a penal colony only to be tracked down by a ruthless bounty hunter. Finnish actress Pihla Viitala (“Bad Family”) and Germany’s Vinzenz Kiefer, who had a supporting role in “The Baader Meinhof Complex,” also star. Principle photography is also planned for fall.
More from Screen Daily:
British director and producer team, Dominic and Lee Santana have arrived in Cannes with a trio of high-profile stars attached to the next two films being produced under their UK-based Santana Brothers production banner.
Ralph Fiennes and Olga Kurylenko will star in romantic drama Coronet and Damian Lewis will star in the action thriller Man Is Wolf To Man.
“We have two films going into production this fall so things are moving incredibly fast for us right now,” said the brothers. “Casting has been our main priority over the last month and we’re very excited that Damian, Ralph and Olga are on board for their respective roles. Ralph and Olga are the perfect leads for Coronet given the on-screen chemistry they can generate to bring the story to life. Damian is a remarkably gifted actor who will command the screen in Man Is Wolf. We’re eager to get started on both films.”
