Jackie Earle Haley joins Scorsese's ''Shutter''

Posted on

(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) ? Jackie Earle Haley (Little Children), Max von Sydow (The Diving Bell and the Butterfly), and Emily Mortimer (Lars and the Real Girl, Lovely and Amazing) have been tapped for Martin Scorsese‘s mystery drama Shutter Island. They join a cast that includes Leonardo DiCaprio, Mark Ruffalo, Ben Kingsley, Michelle Williams, and Patricia Clarkson (Lars and the Real Girl, Pieces of April). The story, adapted from Dennis Lehane’s 2004 novel, is about a pair of U.S. marshals (DiCaprio and Ruffalo) who travel to a Massachusetts island to investigate the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane. The two get trapped on the island when a hurricane hits and a violent inmate riot breaks out. Williams plays the dead wife who haunts DiCaprio’s character. Kingsley is the hospital’s enigmatic chief physician who reluctantly hosts to the two marshals. Haley, who earned an Oscar nod last year for his turn as a convicted sex offender in Little Children, will play an inmate at the hospital. Von Sydow will play a doctor at the facility, and Mortimer will play an escaped patient. Production is scheduled to start March 6. Haley will next appear in the action thriller Watchmen; von Sydow just finished work on Heidi; and Mortimer will next appear in Redbelt and The Pink Panther 2. (Hollywood Reporter)
