If you spend even an hour of your day on TikTok; you have inevitably stumbled, or fallen head first into the world the world that is Sebastian Stan, stan accounts. Whether you were already a fan of the Avengers alum, or have recently joined the string of girls and women alike obsessing over yet another white boy (a worthy white boy, might we add), there's no denying that Stan has a good thing going. So, when we woke this morning to the news that his next role would be opposite the formidable Julianne Moore in the new film, Sharper, you can imagine we were more than thrilled.
For many of us who have watched starry-eyed as Stan bodied the role of Bucky Barnes in multiple films and series' in the Marvel Cinematic Universe; his upcoming role in Sharper certainly plays on his action-film experience. The film follows the story of a remarkable con artist, portrayed by Moore; and set in the world of Manhattan’s billionaire echelon. Stan naturally, plays Max; a wise scammer known for carrying out complex plans and making huge sums of money. Did we expect anything less from this charming man?
Though the details on the plot are still relatively unclear, we can only speculate that Moore and Stan's characters will unite in some way to pull off a brilliant scheme. You know what they say, two heads are better than one.
The Sharper film is reportedly based on the spec screenplay by Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka, which was recently named to the 16th annual The Black List. Emmy and BAFTA Award-nominated director Benjamin Caron, who has worked on and Sherlock, will serve as director; working alongside Moore who will also executive produce.
The thrilling new action film is the latest love child from Apple Original Film and A24; so at least we know we'll be able to stream it eventually from our living rooms.
Stay tuned for more details on Sharper to come.
