Netflix is moving forward quickly since getting the rights to the Brooks McLaren script for How It Ends back in January. Deadline is reporting that Theo James (Divergent) has come on board to star with David M. Rosenthal (The Perfect Guy) directing. The film is expected to start production in Canada next month.
How It Ends is an action thriller about a young father who will stop at nothing to get home to his pregnant wife on the other side of the country. The script was on the 2010 Black List. The Black List, not to be confused with the James Spader series, is the list of the best un-produced screenplays of the year according to a poll of 100 industry film development executives.
Besides playing Four in the Divergent series, James has also appeared in the Underworld franchise and had his own TV series, Golden Boy, for one season on CBS. He is currently wrapping up filming on the sci-fi romancer Zoe opposite Ewan McGregor and Léa Seydoux.
