Armie Hammer Set For Mine
A new thriller from The Conjuring's producers

Armie-Hammer-Set-For-Mine

Armie Hammer may not have seen the career boost he might have expected when The Lone Ranger failed to connect with audiences, but he’s still booking films. Variety reports that he’ll star in a psychological thriller called Mine.

No, the film won’t see him playing a live-action version of the seagulls from Finding Nemo. He’s actually set to play a soldier who finds himself stranded in the desert after a failed assassination mission. Exposed to the rigours of the harsh environment, he’ll have to battle life-threatening dangers and psychological trauma as he tries to survive. We're guessing there might be landmines involved as well, but possibly we're overthinking the title there.

Fabio Guaglione and Fabio Resinaro are set to co-write and direct the film, aiming to star work in the autumn, with The Conjuring's producer Peter Safran overseeing the shoot. We’re just hoping Hammer doesn’t have flashbacks to his Ranger days in the desert.

Next up for the actor is Guy Ritchie’s big screen version of The Man From U.N.C.L.E., which will see Hammer’s Ilya Kuryakin paired with Henry Cavill’s Napoleon Solo as the agents trying to stop a mysterious criminal organisation’s nuclear plans. It’ll be out in the UK on January 16 next year.
