Max Martini is in talks to join James Badge Dale in SPECTRAL. The supernatural/action project follows a special ops group that is formed to bring down evil ghosts that have taken over Manhattan. Ian Fried wrote the original script, based on a pitch, but the current draft has been re-written by John Gatins. Legendary acquired the pitch for an impressive six figures, based largely on the sizzle reel created by Fried.
Take a look at the sizzle reel below:
Martini is best known for his action roles in “Saving Private Ryan,” “Pacific Rim,” and “Captain Phillips.” He also appeared in this year’s “Sabotage” opposite Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sam Worthington, and Joe Manganiello. Martini currently appears in NBC’s action/thriller “Crisis” and recently wrapped the big screen adaptation of “Fifty Shades of Grey.”
Martini is repped by Characters Talent Agency, ICM and Anonymous Content.
