Forest Whitaker will join Theo James in action-thriller How It Ends, directed by David M. Rosenthal and written by Brooks McLaren. The project centers on a mysterious apocalyptic event that turns the roads into mayhem and a young father who will stop at nothing to get home to his pregnant wife on the other side of the country.
Sierra/ Affinity is handling worldwide sales and financing. The movie is set to start production next month in Winnipeg, Canada.
Whitaker was most recently seen in the Star Wars stand-alone film Rogue One and the sci-fi movie Arrival. The actor has wrapped work on Marvel and Disney’s Black Panther, helmed by Ryan Coogler.
