Diego Boneta is a dead man…
The 22-year-old Mexican actor/singer has joined the cast of the thriller The Dead Men.
The film is the debut feature of Kirk Sullivan, who recently left his job as Joel Silver’s assistant to pursue his dream of being a director.
The Andrew Poston-scripted film centers on an American running from his past who is brought into a group of young underground radicals called The Dead Men, only to discover a centuries-old spiritual battle.
Boneta, who starred opposite Tom Cruise in Rock of Ages, had roles on Pretty Little Liars and 90210 before landing the plum starring role of the aspiring musician in the big-screen adaptation of the hit musical Rock of Ages.
He also starred in MTV’s comedy series Underemployed.
Production on The Dead Men began this week.
