‘X-Men’s’ Caleb Landry Jones Joins John Slattery’s ‘God’s Pocket’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Thesp will also star in John Hawkes pic 'Low Down'

After launching a career with commercial hits like “Contraband” and “X-Men: First Class,” Caleb Landry Jones is back to more arthouse driven projects, as the actor has attached himself to John Slattery’s directorial debut, “God’s Pocket” and “Low Down,” starring John Hawkes.

In “God’s Pocket,” Jones joins a cast that already includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Richard Jenkins and Christina Hendricks, with Seymour Hoffman’s Cooper’s Town Productions and Park Pictures producing.

Story revolves around the uncovering of the truth about a young man’s death that the dead-end town of God’s Pocket is trying to keep buried. Jones plays the young man.

Besides Hawkes, Jones also joins Glenn Close and Elle Fanning in the Jeff Preiss-helmed “Low Down.” Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa are producing for Bona Fide, with Mindy Goldberg.

Story revolves around the life of pianist Joe Albany (Hawkes) from the perspective of his young daughter (Fanning), as she watches him contend with his drug addiction during the 1960s and ’70s jazz scene.  Jones will play Fanning’s love interest.

Jones has continued looking for strong character driven projects that are more on the smaller scale than films like “X-Men: First Class” having already appeared in the indie thriller” Antiviral” and “Byzantium” with Gemma Arterton. He is repped by Resolution and Untitled Entertainment.
