Benjamin Walker to Star in Psychological Thriller '2:22'

Variety reports that Benjamin Walker has signed on to star opposite Teresa Palmer in the psychological thriller "2:22". Production is scheduled to get underway in Australia this October.

Walker will portray "a man whose life is derailed when an ominous pattern of events repeats itself in exactly the same manner every day, ending at precisely 2:22 pm. He falls for a beautiful woman whose life is threatened by these strange events, forcing him to solve the mystery of 2:22."

In 2007, Benjamin performed in the Broadway revival of Inherit The Wind, starring Christopher Plummer, Brian Dennehy, and Denis O'Hare, under the direction of Doug Hughes. In 2008, he performed in Roundabout Theatre's production of Les Liaisons Dangereuses opposite Laura Linney, which was nominated for six Tony awards.

He played the title role in the Alex Timbers' musical, Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson, in the show's world premiere at the Kirk Douglas Theater in Los Angeles, CA. Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson re-opened in New York to rave reviews and Benjamin returned in the starring role of Andrew Jackson. Benjamin most recently starred in Timur Bekmambetov's Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter for 20th Century Fox and producer Tim Burton, in which he played Lincoln, based on the novel by Seth Grahame-Smith of the same name. He will next be seen in HBO's "Muhammad Ali's Greatest Fight" as Kevin Kennedy, a Supreme Court clerk who wrote the legal briefs resulting in the guarantee of Ali's status as a conscientious objector.

Walker's most recent Broadway appearance was in the revival of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, starring Scarlett Johansson.
