Silver Star: Shameik Moore Joins Cast For Crime Drama

Deadline is exclusively reporting that Shameik Moore will be starring alongside Sydney Sweeney in the upcoming crime drama Silver Star.

The film will tell the story of an unlikely couple: Buddy, a twenty-year-old fresh out of jail, and Franny, a pregnant nineteen-year-old. After his botched robbery attempt at a bank that foreclosed on Buddy’s childhood home, he abducts her, triggering an unexpected journey together.

.

Shameik Moore (whose credits include Spider-Man: Into The Spider-Verse and Wu-Tang: An American Saga) will be playing the role of Buddy, a twenty-year-old Civil War re-enactor who is fresh out of jail and struggling to root himself in today’s world. Buddy is determined to reconnect with his estranged parents by saving their home from foreclosure, whatever it takes.

Fionnuala Jamison, Head of International Sales of MK2 Films, released a statement saying:

From playing iconic roles such as Spider-Man and Wu-Tang’s Raekwon, we are excited for Shameik Moore to really make the character of Buddy his own. Moore’s Buddy will bring the perfect balance to Sydney Sweeney’s Franny and we can’t wait to see them together onscreen.

The film is being written and directed by Ruben Amar, who will also serve as producer under his banner Les Films de la Fusée alongside Lola Bessis, Virginie Lacombe of Virginie Films and The Community’s Jamin O’Brien.

Production on Silver Star is scheduled to commence later in the year.
