Sam Claflin, who may perhaps be greatest identified for participating in Oswald Mosley on Peaky Blinders and Finnick Odair in the Starvation Video games franchise, has signed on to star in the supernatural thriller Bagman, which is established up at Starvation Online games‘ home studio Lionsgate. Colm McCarthy, who beforehand directed The Woman With All the Presents, the Krypton pilot, and the entirety of Peaky Blinders time 2, is taking the helm of Bagman, working from a screenplay by John Hulme.
Claflin is getting on the role of
a father who desperately struggles from his deepest internal fear when the childhood monster he when vanquished returns to haunt him. This time, nevertheless, the father has to muster the strength to not just combat for himself but for his family.
Bagman is being made by Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill. Meredith Wieck and Jorge Alfaro are overseeing the project for Lionsgate, whilst John Fischer does the exact same for Temple Hill.
Lionsgate’s Nathan Kahane experienced this to say (to The Hollywood Reporter) about Claflin signing on to star in Bagman:
Since we 1st worked with him on Catching Fire, Sam has developed into a compelling main man. We’re thrilled that he responded so strongly to this job.”
I haven’t observed Peaky Blinders or the Starvation Online games videos, so I’m not acquainted with Claflin’s most well-known roles. I have evidently found him in Really like Marriage Repeat, Enola Holmes, and as Punter #5 in Final Night in Soho, however. I glance ahead to observing what the “childhood monster” he’ll have to battle in Bagman is likely to be like.
