TWILIGHT STAR TAKES ON HIT INDIE THRILLER
With the final instalment of the Twilight series already racking up a massive $702m internationally; in a major coup, Canadian Director, Lee Chambers stopped by Hollywood to sign a deal with one of the Twilight
heart throb stars, Booboo Stewart (Seth Clearwater) for the lead role in his adrenaline-filled, action-packed, The Pineville Heist
In an exciting and unique move, Chambers adapted his award-winning screenplay, co-written with Boston’s Todd Gordon, into a novel while going through the processes of producing the movie version. The novel is already attracting an enthusiastic and dedicated fan following in over 8 countries world-wide and in April 2012 saw it reach #1 Amazon Best Seller rankings.
While meeting Chambers, Stewart explained his appeal for the thriller and why he jumped at the chance of starring as Aaron Stevens.
“I want to star in The Pineville Heist movie because it’s a good story and something I haven’t done before. I like bringing things to life and I just think this is a great project. I really enjoy how, once it starts, it just goes. You don’t see a lot of movies like that. There are so many things within the screenplay. The thriller! There’s action, but there’s also that family bond,” Stewart enthuses.
And what does Stewart expect to bring to the role? “I think I can bring a light heartedness to the character. I think that would play well with all the fear that drives the movie. Plus there’s a hint of romance which I like.”
A hint of romance that is also likely to appeal to the already rapidly growing band of young female followers of The Pineville Heist and this young movie heart throb.
