Check out the exclusive reveal of the poster for After The Dark!
Set at an international school in Jakarta, where a philosophy teacher (James D’Arcy) challenges his class of twenty students to a final thought experiment. Faced with an impending nuclear apocalypse, they must determine which ten of them would take shelter underground and reboot the human race.
The decision quickly becomes deadly as each in the group turns against each other in a desperate fight for survival that blurs the lines between theory and reality.
According to Deadline, the 26-year-old English actor will star opposite Shiri Appleby in Lifetime’s drama pilot Unreal.
The series goes behind the scenes of a hit competition dating show to follow the experiences of Rachel (Appleby), a young staffer whose sole job is to manipulate her relationships with (and among) the contestants to heighten the drama. Freddie will play the handsome and charming bachelor who is at the center of the reality show — the heir to a hotel empire — who resists being a part of the show until he realizes that he can use it to his advantage.
Freddie is probably best known for playing Cormac McLaggen in the Harry Potter films.
Written and directed by The Vicious Brothers, the film is a dark and edgy sci-fi thriller that revolves around a group of friends on a weekend trip to a cabin in the woods. There, they are terrorized by alien visitors who definitely have not come in peace.
Check out the first trailer from The Philosophers, starring Bonnie Wright!
The Philosophers revolves around a brilliant but mysterious philosophy teacher who challenges his class of twenty graduating seniors to undertake one final thought experiment in order to complete the requirements for graduation. The experiment is to be the most extreme they have ever had to face. Using the power of logic alone, the students must choose which of them would be worthy of a place in an underground shelter built to withstand a fast-approaching nuclear apocalypse. The shelter only has space for ten people, which means certain death for those that are not chosen.
The 25-year-old British actor opened up about his musical calling, filming in Indonesia and the importance of an education. Check it:
On filming The Philosophers: “I had a great time filming in Indonesia. The story is set in an International School and takes place in the last philosophy class of the year. And the characters slowly discover more about themselves, their friends and their values. I play a character who is a bit of a jock but only in the sense that he likes sports. He’s pretty playful and confident.”
On his musical side: “I play guitar and sing but am not trained. I would perform at school and it was something else that I liked doing. So once I started acting and I occasionally had to sing in auditions, it was useful to have.”
On his university studies: “Well, I studied Maths, Biology, Chemistry and German at A-level and wanted to carry on down that route. And to be able to study the brain scientifically just sounded amazing. It’s the best degree in the world! (in my opinion obviously) I didn’t study Neuroscience with any intentions of a career in research or anything. It was just a subject that I found really interesting.”
