“House of Cards” star Rachel Brosnahan and David Call have been set for the lead roles in indie thriller “Americana,” Flies Collective announced on Monday.
Zachary Shedd is writing and directing the thriller, which is described as an indie take on the great San Francisco thrillers of the 1970s. Call will play Avery Wells, a recovering alcoholic and aspiring film editor who must investigate the death of his movie star sister, played by Brosnahan, while dealing with his own personal demons.
“David and Rachel are exceptionally talented actors who are perfectly poised to assume these roles and we could not be more thrilled to have them lead the cast of Americana,” said Shedd.
Brosnahan is known for her role on Netflix’s “House of Cards” and is currently starring on WGN America’s “Manhattan.” Call made his screen debut in “The Notorious Bettie Page” and has done guest and recurring stints on shows like “Gossip Girl” and “Smash.”
“Americana” is the third film from Flies Collective, who previously made “A Little Closer” and “Hide Your Smiling Faces.”
