Jacob Tremblay, the child star of Oscar winning movie Room (2015), is set to join the cast of Xavier Dolan’s eagerly anticipated English language film debut The Death and Life of John F. Donovan.
Tremblay will star alongside such Hollywood heavyweights as Natalie Portman, Susan Sarandon, Kathy Bates and Jessica Chastain in the movie that will be led by Kit Harrington in the titular role.
The news of Tremblay’s casting follows a year of similarly positive news for the young actor, with roles beside icons such as Julia Roberts and Naomi Watts also being added to his schedule.
The movie is currently shooting in Canada, with the UK, the Czech Republic and the US set to follow. No release date has been announced.
