‘Tron: Legacy’ Star Garrett Hedlund to Join Oscar Isaac in William Monahan’s ‘Mojave’ Movie

Atlas Independent is teaming with Relativity International on the original thriller

Garrett Hedlund is set to join his "Inside Llewyn Davis" co-star Oscar Isaac in William Monahan's original thriller "Mojave," which Atlas Independent is producing with the filmmaker’s Henceforth Pictures banner.

In addition to writing and directing, Monahan also will produce, alongside William Green of Atlas Independent, whose Andy Horwitz will exec-produce with Justine Suzanne Jones of Henceforth Pictures.

Relativity International will co-finance and handle foreign sales at Cannes.

An affiliate of Charles Roven‘s Atlas Entertainment, Atlas Independent produces indie-minded movies with budgets of $10 million or less. Its upcoming releases include Gonzalo Lopez-Gallego’s genre pic “Open Grave,” starring Sharlto Copley.

Hedlund, who is best known for starring in "Tron: Legacy" and "On the Road," recently wrapped the indie drama "Lullaby." The Coen brothers' folk-music tale "Inside Llewyn Davis" premieres at Cannes before opening in the U.S. on Dec. 6 via CBS Films.

Hedlund is repped by WME, Brillstein Entertainment Partners and attorney David Weber.
