Following his work on Apple TV+ series “Shantaram,” Australian director Justin Kurzel (“Nitram,” “Macbeth,” “Assassin’s Creed,” “Snowtown”) is returning to the true crime genre again for his next project “The Order” starring Jude Law and Nicholas Hoult.
Based on Kevin Flynn and Gary Gerhardt’s book “The Silent Brotherhood,” this follows the real-life U.S. white supremacist militia groups and a string of domestic terrorist acts they committed in the 1980s Pacific Northwest – drawing the attention of the FBI.
Law will play the Idaho FBI agent who pieced together the spree’s pattern while Hoult, who worked with Kurzel before on “True History of the Kelly Gang,” plays the charismatic leader behind the groups and their attacks.
Filming begins this spring in Alberta, Canada and Zach Baylin pens the script. Law, Kurzel, Baylin, Brian Haas, Ben Jackson, Stephen Fuss, Kate Susman, Jeremy Saulnier, and Zach Garett produce.
Law’s next role will be as Captain Hook in David Lowery’s “Peter Pan & Wendy” at Disney+ along with playing King Henry VIII opposite Alicia Vikander as Catherine Parr in “Firebrand,” and in a key role in the secretive TV series “Star Wars: Skeleton Crew”.
Hoult recently started in the dark comedy “The Menu” and will soon be seen in the comedy “Renfield” and Robert Eggers’ long-gestating “Nosferatu” remake.
