True crime and director Justin Kurzel go hand-in-hand. The filmmaker because Nitram, True History of the Kelly Gang, and Snowtown is obviously fascinated by the subject, and will continue exploring it with his next film, The Order. And for this one, Kurzel has landed two big stars to lead it.
Deadline reports Jude Law and Nicholas Hoult will star in The Order, Kurzel’s film based on the book, The Silent Brotherhood, by Kevin Flynn and Gary Gerhardt. It centers on the real-life white supremacist group known as The Order, Silent Brotherhood, or Aryan Resistance Movement, who were active in the U.S. between 1983-1984. They were responsible for a series of domestic terrorist attacks up and down the Pacific Northwest, including the murder of Jewish talk show host Alan Berg.
Law will play the FBI agent who figured out the group’s attack pattern, while Hoult will play the group’s charismatic leader.
Kurzel has been hit-or-miss throughout his career, the less said about Assassin’s Creed the better, but when in his wheelhouse he’s always a director worth watching. This sounds potentially great, and hopefully we’ll get to see it in 2024.
