David Ajala (Fast & Furious 6) is set to topline Falling Water, a supernatural thriller from the late Henry Bromell (Homeland), Brotherhood creator Blake Masters and The Walking Dead executive producer Gale Anne Hurd, with Juan Carlos Fresnadillo directing.
Written and co-created by Masters and Bromell, Falling Water, from Universal Cable Prods., is described as a mind-bending thriller intersecting reality and unconscious thoughts. It tells the story of three unrelated people who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each is on a quest for something that can only be found in their subconscious. However, the more they begin to use the dream world as a tool to advance their hidden agendas, they realize that their visions are trying to tell them something and that their very real lives are at stake.
Ajala will play Burton, the head of in-house security for a multinational investment banking firm whose personal and professional paranoia collide when an investigation into financial malfeasance at the firm leads to a backlash that engulfs his love life.
Ajala co-starred on the ABC drama series Black Box and in the new adaptation of Beowulf. He is repped by Silver Lining Entertainment, Independent Talent Group and Stone, Meyer.
