Sean Bean has a way of dying in mostly everything he’s been in. But maybe that will change now that he’s been cast in the trilogy Devil’s Peak.
Variety reports that Bean will be leading a cast in the adaptation of Deon Meyer’s novels. The trilogy of books will see Bean playing the Detective Benny Griessel in the thriller. The trilogy from the South African author starts with Devil’s Peak and continues with 13 Hours and then ends with 7 Days.
The film will be shot on location in Cape Town, South Africa with an expected start for filming in September. Producer Malcolm Kohll said “I believe that Deon Meyer will do for the South African thriller what Stieg Larsson did for the Scandinavian crime novel.”
