Young Ghanaian actor, Abraham Attah, who won the Marcello Mastroianni's Best Young Actor Award at the 2015 Venice Film Festival for his lead performance in the 'Beasts of No Nation' alongside Idris Elba, Ama k Abebrese and others, has landed a new role in Hollywood.
The 14-year old actor has joined the ensemble cast of Shane Carruth's third film, 'The Modern Ocean', which includes Anne Hathaway, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield and Jeff Goldblum.
The storyline revolves around vengeance and the fierce competition for valuable shipping routes and priceless materials that converge in a spectacular battle on the rolling decks of behemoth cargo ships.
"This epic tale, fraught with danger and intrigue, takes us from the ancient trading houses of Algeria to the darkest depths of the ocean floor," said FilmNation in describing the project, which it will introduce to foreign buyers converging this week in Santa Monica for the American Film Market.
Modern Ocean is sure to draw keen interest for its cast alone.
The award winning Abraham Attah in a recent interview on Joy FM said he will still hang out with his regular friends like he used to before the movie.
The Ashiaman-based young actor, who played the role of a child soldier, returned to Ghana recently after meeting some of the biggest names in movies in Hollywood in the United States. The impressive list of acts he met during his stay in the United States included Will Smith and The Hunger Games star, Elizabeth Banks.
