Share

– Glen Powell is in early discussions to star in a forthcoming film directed by J.J. Abrams, details of which are still private and no agreement has been finalized.
– Powell has multiple projects lined up including “The Blue Angels,” “Monsanto,” “Hit Man,” “Twisters,” “Huntington,” and an Edgar Wright project, cementing his status as a sought-after actor in Hollywood.

Glen Powell’s trajectory continues to soar, establishing him as one of the foremost sought-after leading men in Hollywood’s dynamic vista. With his natural charm and proven talent, Powell is reportedly on the verge of joining forces with acclaimed director J.J. Abrams on an upcoming cinematic endeavor.

The news stirring through the grapevines of the entertainment industry indicates that Powell is engaged in preliminary negotiations to play a role in Abrams’ newest film project. This partnership is of notable interest to observers of cinematic trends, as both creatives have carved out distinctive places in the film landscape. While details of the plot are shrouded in mystery, there’s an assurance that time travel, a speculation that had previously circulated, will not be part of the film’s narrative, thus quelling a raft of rumors.

Abrams’ camp, specifically his Bad Robot production company, maintains a poised silence, offering no additional insight into the discussions currently unfolding.

Despite the secrecy surrounding his potential role in Abrams’ next offering, Powell isn’t shying away from the limelight. He’s involved as a producer on Paul Crowder’s upcoming documentary, “The Blue Angels,” which provides an inside look at the Navy’s storied Flight Demonstration Squadron. This documentary is set to premiere in IMAX theaters, quickly transitioning thereafter to a more accessible platform on Prime Video.

Not content with these endeavors alone, Powell is expanding his repertoire with a diverse selection of roles. “The Hollywood Reporter” shared that he’s gearing up to feature alongside Anthony Mackie and Laura Dern in John Lee Hancock’s legal drama “Monsanto,” a project whose global rights are expected to be hawked at the Cannes Film Market with the domestic side of things handled by CAA Media Finance.

Moreover, Powell’s post “Anyone but You” period continues to be a whirlwind of constant activity. He’s flexing his creative muscles with co-writing and starring in Richard Linklater’s “Hit Man” for Netflix, set for imminent release after its premiere at the prestigious Venice Film Festival—another feather in Powell’s cap.

Surfing the wave of demand, Powell also anchors a starring role in Lee Isaac Chung’s “Twisters,” an action-packed sequel that promises to draw audiences to theaters in mid-July. His schedule doesn’t stop there, as the actor is preparing to tread the boards in the revenge drama “Huntington” to be shot in South Africa. Additionally, Edgar Wright has tapped him for the latest adaptation of the thriller “The Running Man,” likely to be a Paramount Pictures venture.
