Dune’s David Dastmalchian Joins Boston Strangler Cast in Big Role
Dune star David Dastmalchian has joined Keira Knightley in the upcoming Boston Strangler crime thriller based on the ’60s serial killer of the same name.
Dune Star David Dastmalchian has joined the cast of the upcoming film Boston Strangler in an important role. The 46-year-old character actor has an impressive filmography, stretching from his small role as escaped convict Thomas Schiff in The black Knight supporting Kurt’s comedic role in the The ant Man movies. Dastmalchian recently became a successful leading actor in 2021, starring in James Gunn The suicide squad like Polka-Dot-Man and Denis Villeneuve Dune, where he plays Piter de Vries, husband of the wicked Baron Harkonnen.
Now according to THR, the actor will star alongside Keira Knightley in Boston Strangler – the upcoming drama based on the serial killer of the same name. The film is directed by Matt Ruskin who directed the award-winning film at Sundance Crown heights. Knightley stars as Loretta McLaughlin, the reporter who revealed the killer’s story and challenged 1960s stereotypes that stigmatized women journalists. The prestigious cast also includes Missing girlby Oscar winner Carrie Coon and Chris Cooper. Dastmalchian joins the cast in an unnamed role which is described as “pivot.“
The actor continues his hot film streak, quickly becoming one of Hollywood’s busiest actors. While not much else is known about the historical thriller, it’s possible Dastmalchian will play Albert DeSalvo, the man who was ultimately credited with the rapes and murders. DeSalvo was previously played onscreen by Tony Curtis in the portrayal of Criminal Madness in 1968. Pre-production has just started on Boston Strangler, filming due to start in the coming weeks.
