The project follows ex-cop Jimmy Hill (Kebbell), who just wants to be left alone after moving back home in rural Florida. But when a local murder is linked to the sunken treasure of a lost Spanish galleon, he’s drawn into the investigation by an idealistic deputy and pitted against the powerful town patriarch, outside criminal agents, and his own father.
He joins previously announced cast member Charity Wakefield, who has been cast as the female lead, Gwen.
Kebbell is known for his roles in films like the rebooted “Planet of the Apes” franchise, “Kong: Skull Island,” “The Fantastic Four,” “Warcraft,” and “RocknRolla.” He will also appear in the film “The Hurricane Heist,” which opens in theaters on March 9.
He is repped by CAA and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush, Kaller & Gellman LLP.
