Hunger Games Tribute Joins Two Indie Directorial Debuts
Former All My Children star Leven Rambin kicked her movie career into gear last year with a small but pivotal role in the blockbuster adaptation of the wildly popular YA novel The Hunger Games. In the dystopian adventure, Rambin drew notice as the beautiful but deadly tribute Glimmer from District 1. Hot on the heels of the film’s release, she booked the female lead in another YA adaptation Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters and took to the big screen again in the surfing drama Chasing Mavericks. But this summer, she’ll be getting gritty within two indie dramas.
Deadline reports Rambin has signed on to star in both Seven Minutes and Walter. The first will mark the writing-directing debut of storyboard artist Jay Martin, who has worked on such high-action offerings as The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, Constantine and I Am Legend. Seven Minutes stars former Australian soap star Luke Mitchell as a young athlete who’s forced to reconsider his life when a bad injury sidelines him. Rambin will play love interest to Mitchell. Kris Kristofferson and Joel Murray will co-star.
As for Walter, the drama was penned by Paul Shoulberg and is based on his short film of the same name. Pussycat Dolls Present: Girlicious producer Anna Mastro will helm, making her feature directorial debut following a string of shorts. The feature follows the titular man who believed he is the son of God, intended to pass judgment on all he encounters. Andrew J. West will reprise the role of Walter. Once more, Rambin will play the love interest.
Both films will be shooting this summer.
