Robert Aramayo, best known for playing young Ned Stark on the most recent season of Game of Thrones, has joined the cast of Fox’s supernatural thriller The Empty Man.

James Badge Dale (13 Hours) is starring in the movie, which is set to begin shooting in Cape Town, South Africa, in September.

David Britten Prior is directing from a script he wrote adapting a Boom! Studios comic. Boom!'s Ross Richie and Stephen Christy are producing.

The story centers on an ex-cop (Dale), plagued by the violent death of his wife and son, who battles to find a missing girl but soon discovers a sinister presence around him.

Aramayo’s character is being kept under wraps. The comic was written by Cullen Bunn and illustrated by Vanesa R. Del Rey. Boom!'s Adam Yoelin is co-producing.

Aramayo is a relative newcomer who made his debut on HBO’s hit fantasy playing a character first originated by Sean Bean. He makes his feature debut in Nocturnal Animals, the upcoming drama from Tom Ford that boasts an all-star cast ranging from Amy Adams and Jake Gyllenhaal to Laura Linney and Michael Shannon.

Aramayo is also starring in Discovery’s new scripted mini-series Harley and the Davidsons, which premieres September 5 with Game of Thrones co-star Michiel Huisman. The actor is repped by Paradigm, Myrna Jacoby of MJ Management and Georgina Monkland of the U.K.'s 42.
