Michael C. Hall and Boyd Holbrook will be In the Shadow of the Moon together for Netflix’s new original film.
Directed by king of indie pulp thrillers Jim Mickle, the film follows a Philly police officer who struggles with a lifelong obsession to track a mysterious serial killer whose crimes defy explanation. It’s written by Gregory Weidman and Geoff Tock, with Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Rian Cahill producing for Automatik, alongside Ben Pugh for 42, Linda Moran and Mickle for Nightshade. The exec producers are Fred Berger and Rory Aitken.
Boyd Holbrook (Logan, Narcos) was already attached to the project and has now been joined by Emmy nominee and Golden Globe/SAG winner Michael C. Hall, Cleopatra Coleman (The Last Man on Earth, White Famous) and Emmy Award nominee Bokeem Woodbine (Fargo (TV), Spider-Man: Homecoming).
Hall, who is most famous for his role in Dexter, needs no introduction to Mickle, after appearing in Cold in July. He is also no stranger to Netflix, after starring in missing-child thriller Safe, which premiered earlier this year. Holbrook, meanwhile, has made his name with Netflix, following a starring role in global smash hit Narcos.
Filming began on In the Shadow of the Moon last week, with the film set to debut worldwide in 2019.
