Cary Elwes And Matthew Modine Cast In Burning At Both Ends

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn actor Cary Elwes and Stranger Things actor Matthew Modine have signed on to the cast of Burning at Both Ends.

Both Elwes and Modine have quite the history on big and small screens alike. Elwes first rose to prominence with his role as Westley in The Princess Bride, going on to star in Hot Shots!  and Robin Hood: Men in Tights and playing a recurring role in the last two seasons of The X-Files. Modine, on the other hand, is known for his role as Private Joker in Full Metal Jacket as well as his more recent role in The Dark Knight Rises as Jim Gordon’s lieutenant Peter Foley.

Set in occupied-France, the film tells the story of members of the French resistance taking refuge with a Jewish family and airing broadcasts against the Nazi invaders. It is unknown when the movie will see release at this point.

Per Variety, the source of this story:

Hirsch previously produced “Passion Play,” starring Megan Fox, Mickey Rourke, and Bill Murray; and “Main Street,” starring Colin Firth and Orlando Bloom. Also producing is Tyler W. Konney, president of Taylor & Dodge, which recently wrapped up production of the action-thriller “Black Water,” starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren.

Taylor & Dodge will handle worldwide sales on “Burning at Both Ends.” Roderick Flint and Joshua Fine, co-founders of Slingshot, are executive producing.

About the author

Reggie Peralta

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
