Holbrook rounds out ‘Tombstones’ cast

'The Host' star joins Liam Neeson, Dan Stevens and Ruth Wilson

Boyd Holbrook, star of upcoming pic “The Host,” has rounded out the cast of the Cross Creek pic “A Walk Among the Tombstones” starring Liam Neeson.

The pic also stars Dan Stevens and Ruth Wilson and will be directed by Scott Frank.

Frank adapted the pic from the Lawrence Block tome, which follows an ex-NYPD officer, played by Neeson, who is now serving as a private investigator who is hired to find the kidnapped wife of a drug dealer. He soon finds out the perpetrators have done this before, resulting in several murders.

Cross Creek Pictures and Exclusive Media will co-finance and produce, with Universal distributing domestically.

Frank looks to be surrounding Neeson with young talent that will very much be in the public eye by the time this pic makes it to theaters.

As with Stevens and Wilson, the CAA-repped Holbrook has a handful of films set to bow in the next year, including Terrence Malick’s untitled next pic and Relativity’s “Out of the Furnace.”

Holbrook’s big breakout should come with Open Road’s “The Host,” which is based on “Twilight” scribe Stephenie Meyer’s tome and could lead to similar results for the cast that the “Twilight” franchise did for its cast. It bows on March 29.
