Story by Jack Foley
ANDREW Garfield has signed up to star in new indie drama 99 Homes.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Amazing Spider-Man star will play a man who loses his home to foreclosure, only to eventually find work with the real estate broker who took his house.
The man is soon not only evicting homeowners himself but also helping the man embezzle money from the government.
But while his financial worries ease, his conscience begins to way heavy.
The film has been written and will be directed by Ramin Bahrani, the award-winning filmmaker behind Man Push Cart, and is designed to reflect current economic concerns.
As yet, the role of the manipulative broker has yet to be cast but the search is now on in earnest.
Bahrani’s Man Push Cart followed a former Pakistani rock star turned Manhattan street vendor and won several international awards. He is being viewed as the type of filmmaker who is not afraid to tackle ‘hot button’ issues when making movies.
Garfield has recently completed work on The Amazing Spider-Man 2, which is set for a May 2, 2014 release.
