Oscar Isaac is deserting his latest project…
The 32-year-old Guatemalan-born American actor and singer has signed on to star opposite Jason Clarke in the thriller Mojave.
Directed by William Monahan, who won an Oscar for penning the Martin Scorsese crime drama The Departed, the film repotedly centers on a desert escape by a criminal.
Monahan wrote the script, whose plot details are being kept under wraps.
Isaac, recently seen in Joel and Ethan Coen’s Inside Llewyn Davis, caught Hollywood’s attention in this summer’s blockbuster The Bourne Legacy. He’s also stared in Drive and Sucker Punch.
Producers are eyeing an early 2013 start for Mojave.
