EXCLUSIVE: Hunger Games actor Alexander Ludwig will join Anthony Hopkins, Julia Stiles, and Ray Liotta in Pacific Northwest thriller Go With Me, for director Daniel Alfredson (The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet’s Nest). The picture centers on a young woman, newly returned to her hometown, who becomes the subject of harassment by a local crimelord and turns to an ex-logger (Hopkins) and his laconic young sidekick (Ludwig) for help.
The Enderby Entertainment and Gotham Group production is adapted from the novel of the same name by Castle Freeman, Jr. and marks a reunion for Alfredson and Hopkins, who recently filmed period drama Kidnapping Freddy Heineken together. Hopkins is producing alongside Rick Dugdale, Lindsay Williams, and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein.
Ludwig started acting at a young age with roles in The Seeker: The Dark Is Rising and Race to Witch Mountain. He appeared in The Hunger Games as District 2’s tribute Cato and followed with roles in Grown Ups 2, Lone Survivor, and When the Game Stands Tall. Ludwig also stars on History Channel’s Vikings and will appear opposite Malin Akerman and Taissa Farmiga in the upcoming The Final Girls. He’s repped by ICM Partners, Untitled Entertainment, and Hansen, Jacobson, Teller, Hoberman, Newman, Warren, Richman, Rush & Kaller.
