While Rami Malek has had supporting roles in some pretty big films – Twilight’s Breaking Dawn - Part 2, Need For Speed and Night At The Museum: Secret Of The Tomb among them, his breakout role on TV’s techno conspiracy thriller Mr. Robot is now leapfrogging him into lead roles. Malek is starring in indie mystery **Buster’s Mal Heart{ =nofollow}.

The film, which also has DJ Qualls, Kate Lyn Sheil, Toby Huss, Lin Shaye, Lance Barber, Bruce Bundy and Teresa Yenque in its cast, is described as the story of an eccentric mountain man (Malek) trying to escape the authorities who breaks into a holiday home thinking it could be the idea place to hide out. But when he’s plagued by recurring dreams of of being lost at sea, he discovers a crucial piece of information about his identity. In that… Well, we don’t want to give it all away, right?

Sarah Adina Smith, who previously brought us festival award-winning mystery film The Midnight Swim, has written and will direct this one. Malek, who also appeared in Short Term 12 and Spike Lee’s version of Oldboy, will be back on our screens in Mr. Robot next year.
