Jeremy Irvine Finds The Reach
A new thriller with Michael Douglas

08 September 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

After surviving the rigours of conflict in War Horse and the Dickensian dramas of Great Expectations, Jeremy Irvine will face a fresh challenge for a new film, The Reach. How much of a challenge? Try a wilderness trip with a psychopathic Michael Douglas.

Jean-Baptiste Leonetti is set to craft the thriller from Stephen Susco’s script, itself an adaptation of Robb White’s 1972 novel Deathwatch.

The story finds a hunting enthusiast (Douglas) hiring a guide (Irvine) to take him on a trip through the desert. But because no journey like this in a movie can ever go quite smoothly, the first patch of trouble hits when the hunter kills a prospector.

From there, things get increasingly scary as the nutty gun enthusiast turns on the guide and puts him through a variety of painful physical and mental tests. If it turns up to be part of a job application to work for Microsoft, someone’s going to be really pissed off.

Leonetti is scheduled to start shooting in New Mexico at the end of this month, and anyone who has watched Breaking Bad knows that terrible things can happen in the state’s deserts (this message not approved by the New Mexico tourism board, who would like us to point out the beautiful scenery and welcoming, helpful locals).

Irvine is currently out promoting his latest film, Colin Firth/Nicole Kidman drama The Railway Man. He’s also starred in period pic The World Made Straight and has lined up Woman In Black sequel Angels Of Death.
