Benjamin Walker Lands Male Lead in Indie Drama ‘Look Away’

Benjamin Walker is set to co-star opposite Shannon Tarbet in the indie drama “Look Away.”

The pic also stars Matthew Broderick and Chloë Sevigny, with Andy Delaney and Monty Whitebloom directing.

Lucy Barzun Donnelly and Alexandra Kerry of Locomotive Media are producing. Alexis Alexanian, Peter Friedlander and Lizzie Nastro will exec produce the film, with New Regency on board as an executive producer and co-financier.

Tarbet stars as a woman afflicted with selective blindness, which prevents her from seeing her own mother (Sevigny). Walker will play Farmer Smithson, a local psychiatrist with a mild form of Aspergers who treats her.

Walker broke out onto the scene after starring in “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter” and is building buzz with his upcoming performances in Ron Howard’s “In the Heart of the Sea” and Lionsgate’s Nicholas Sparks adaptation “The Choice.” He also co-stars alongside Pierce Brosnan in “The Moon and the Sun,” which Paramount is expected to release later this year.

Walker is represented by WME and Inspire Entertainment. TheWrap first reported the news.
