Walton Goggins has been set to star in Them That Follow, the dramatic thriller taking shape for a production start next month in Ohio. He joins Olivia Colman, Alice Englert and Thomas Mann in the Amasia Entertainment pic, set deep in the wilds of Appalachia where believers handle death-dealing snakes to prove themselves before God.
Goggins will play Lemuel Childs, the unshakable preacher determined to protect this way of life in a world that is changing and turning against their traditions. Fearing the erosion of his church and the possible loss of his daughter Mara (Englert) to the outside world, he is faced with preventing his community from breaking apart.
Brittany Poulton and Daniel Savage are directing from their original screenplay. Bradley Gallo and Michael Helfant will produce for Amasia with Gerard Butler, Alan Siegel and Danielle Robinson for G-BASE. Amasia is financing.
It’s a busy time for Goggins, who stars alongside Richard Gere and Peter Dinklage in Three Christs, the Jon Avnet pic that is world premiering Thursday at the Toronto Film Festival. He also stars opposite Alicia Vikander in Warner Bros’ Tomb Raider reboot, Disney/Marvel’s Ant Man And The Wasp and Fox’s Maze Runner: The Death Cure all due out next year. His HBO series Vice Principals opposite Danny McBride returns for Season 2 on Sunday.
While it was previously announced the Walton Goggins would be appearing in Ant-Man and the Wasp, it was largely thought he’d play a character such as Crossfire or Taskmaster but at tonight’s panel, he was confirmed to be playing a character by the name of Sonny Burch.
Burch is a character deep in the Marvel mythos. In the comics, he’s the chairman of Cross Technologies — coincidentally the company we were introduced to in Ant-Man.
He has traditionally been a character rooted in Iron Man lore but now that Cross Technologies itself is based within the Ant-Man franchise, once could assume that Burch will want to get back at Lang and Co. for the destroying the company he so feverishly worked for.
Walton Goggins has joined the cast of Marvel’s “Ant-Man and the Wasp.”
Paul Rudd is returning in the title role with Evangeline Lilly coming back as Hope van Dyne — aka the Wasp. Michael Douglas and Michael Pena are also expected to reprise their roles from the original. “Black Mirror” star Hannah John-Kamen and Randal Park have joined the ensemble as well.
Marvel had no comment on the casting.
Peyton Reed, who helmed the first movie, is back in the director’s chair with Rudd and Gabriel Ferrari penning the script. Kevin Feige is producing.
The plot is being kept under wraps, as are details about Goggins’ character. Marvel will be unveiling the film at this week’s Comic-Con.
The original 2015 tentpole grossed $519 million worldwide, including $180 million domestically. Rudd most recently reprised the role in “Captain America: Civil War.” The sequel hits theaters on July 6, 2018.
Goggins stars opposite Alicia Vikander in the “Tomb Raider” reboot, which bows March 16, and he just wrapped “Maze Runner: The Death Cure.” He was most recently seen in the History channel Navy Seal drama “Six.”
He is repped by ICM Partners and manager Darris Hatch. Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
Walton Goggins has joined the cast of Maze Runner: The Death Cure, the third installment of the 20th Century Fox film franchise that is now set for a February 9, 2018 release. The pic had been delayed after an injury to star Dylan O’Brien, but now production is on track to kick off in South Africa.
In the third pic, based on James Dashner’s third novel in his trilogy, O’Brien’s Thomas embarks on a mission to find a cure to a deadly disease knows as the “Flare.” The versatile Goggins, who was long-sought for the pic, will play Lawrence, an unusual and dangerous character who is part-revolutionary, part-anarchist, and a voice for the voiceless people.
Wes Ball directs, and T.S. Nowlin penned the script. Marty Bowen, Wyck Godfrey, Ellen Goldsmith-Vein, Lee Stollman and Joe Hartwick Jr are producing via Temple Hill Entertainment and Gotham Group.
Goggins just wrapped Warner Bros/MGM’s Tomb Raider reboot opposite Alicia Vikander as well as Jon Avnet’s The Three Christs Of Ypsilanti. He also stars opposite Danny McBride in HBO’s Vice Principals which launches its Season 2 in the fall, and in History’s Navy SEAL series Six.
He is repped by ICM Partners and manager Darris Hatch.
