Exclusive: Jack Huston and Brit Marling have signed to star in Posthumous, an edgy dramatic comedy directed by Lulu Wang. Huston, best known as the half-masked assassin in Boardwalk Empire, plays a struggling artist whose artwork skyrockets in value when he is mistakenly thought to have killed himself. The artist decides to keep up the charade by pretending to be his own brother, but the entire plan is put in jeopardy when he befriends an enthusiastic reporter (Marling) who begins to show him the real value of life and art. Wang also wrote the film. The producers are Bernadette Bürgi, Marco Mehlitz Cole Payne, Darryn Welch, Skady Lis and Janet Yang. Both actors have momentum. Huston stars in David Chase’s directorial debut Not Fade Away, he just wrapped the Bille August-directed Night Train To Lisbon with Jeremy Irons, and he plays Jack Kerouac in the John Krokidas-directed Kill Your Darlings. »
