‘Grand Budapest Hotel’ Actor Tony Revolori to Star in Terrorism Thriller ‘Exchanged’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Tony Revolori, who will star opposite Tom Holland in “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” is in final negotiations to take the lead role in the independent thriller “Exchanged” for Meyers Media Group.

Geoff Haley, who worked as a camera operator on “Fast & Furious 7,” “American Hustle,” and “Star Trek Beyond,” is directing from his own screenplay co-written with David Chisholm.

Lawrence Steven Meyers and Randy Dannenberg will produce for Meyers Media Group. Executive producers are John Evangelides and Jonathan Tybel. MMG will also handle worldwide sales.

Revolori will portray an autistic American high school senior who travels to Germany for a student exchange program, only to learn that members of his host family are terrorists. Unable to report them for fear of his own family’s safety, he is coerced into becoming an accomplice to their plan.

Revolori portrayed lobby boy “Zero” in Wes Anderson’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel” and starred in Rick Famuyiwa’s  comedy “Dope.” He will play Flash Thompson, a high school nemesis to Holland’s Peter Parker, in  Marvel-Sony’s “Spider-Man: Homecoming,” and will be seen next in the wedding comedy “Table 19” opposite Anna Kendrick.

“We are excited at the prospect that Tony will be joining our production, as he possesses a certain level of sensitivity needed for this role, besides having a strong and commanding presence, as we have seen in his previous roles,” Meyers said.

Revolori is represented by UTA and Circle of Confusion.

Meyers Media Group recently closed multiple territory deals for the romance-drama “Bitter Harvest,” starring Max Irons and Samantha Barks, at the American Film Market.

But he’s also playing a breathless teenage kid on the inside, and [...]
