Amber Heard is set to star in the dystopian L.A.-set indie drama Gully for prominent music video director Nabil Elderkin. Heard will star alongside All the Money in the World and Lean on Pete star Charlie Plummer as the mother of his character, a traumatized teenager who is one of the organizers of a riot.
The film will focus on Plummer and two other teenagers who have experienced childhood trauma and are plotting the riot in a dystopian version of Los Angeles.
Gully will be the directorial debut of Elderkin. Marcus Guillory wrote the screenplay.
This is only the latest high-profile casting for Heard, who in February was tapped to star in Sentinel Pictures’ romantic thriller Run Away With Me. She is also starring in DC’s Aquaman and Matthew Cullins’ London Fields, based on the Martin Amis novel, set for release in 2018.
