Armie Hammer - H 2015

Jake Gyllenhaal and Aaron Taylor-Johnson are also in the drama.

Armie Hammer has joined the cast of Nocturnal Animals, the drama that is marking Tom Ford’s return to the director’s chair, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

The Focus Features project adapts the Austin Wright novel Tony and Susan and the roll call already includes Jake Gyllenhaal, Amy Adams, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Michael Shannon and Kim Basinger.

The story tells of a woman (Adams) named Susan who receives a book manuscript from her ex-husband, a man whom she left 20 years earlier, asking for her opinion.

The book then tracks two stories: the story in the novel, titled Nocturnal Animals, which tells of a man (Gyllenhaal) whose family vacation turns violent and deadly; and the story of Susan, who finds herself recalling her first marriage and confronting some dark truths about herself.

Hammer will play Adams’ husband. Production is due to begin this fall.

Hammer can currently be seen on the big-screen with Henry Cavill in Man from U.N.C.LE. He is repped by WME and Sloane Offer.
