True Blood‘s Nelsan Ellis (Lafayette Reynolds) has signed on to appear in the movie ‘The Reluctant Fundamentalist’, alongside Riz Ahmed, Kate Hudson, Liev Shreiber and Kiefer Sutherland. The film is based on the book of the same name written by Mohsin Hamid, and is described as:
“a riveting thriller about Changez, a young Pakistani man chasing corporate success on Wall Street in the era of globalisation. After September 11, Changez experiences a seismic shift in his own attitude, unearthing allegiances more fundamental than money, power, and maybe even love.”
Filming has already begun in Atlanta, New York, Lahore, Delhi and Istanbul and a release date has not been set yet.
