Toronto: ‘Don’t Breathe’ Star Daniel Zovatto Joins John Cusack in Thriller ‘Misfortune’

“Don’t Breathe” star Daniel Zovatto has joined John Cusack and Willa Fitzgerald in the chase thriller “Misfortune” with filming starting Oct. 3 in Savannah, Ga.

Radiant Films International made the announcement Thursday on the opening day of the Toronto Film Festival, where it is selling rights. Producers are Lee Nelson, David Buelow and David Tish of Envision Media Arts (“Mr. Church” and “Celeste & Jesse Forever”).

Lucky McKee (“All Cheerleaders Die”) is directing  from a screenplay by Jared Butler and Lars Norberg.

Cusack will portray a quick-witted businessman who had left everything behind, including his family, to start a new life after embezzling a client’s money. All had been going according to plan until he becomes separated from his cash in the middle of the wilderness.

Zovatto will take on the role of one of three friends in the story who are tempted by the large sum of money found in the wilderness.

Zovatto’s feature credits include last year’s “It Follows” and romantic comedy “Laggies.” TV credits include  guest starring in ABC’s “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” and a recurring role in FX’s “Fear the Walking Dead.”

Zovatto will also star in “Dimension 404”, Hulu’s six-episode sci-fi, fantasy anthology scripted series from Lionsgate. He’s repped by CAA, Luber Roklin and Jackoway Tyerman.
