David Hewlett Cast with Rachel Weisz in New Indie Film

November 12, 2009

 

“Stargate Atlantis” alumnus David Hewlett, who’s appearing in the forthcoming straight-to-video movies that will wrap up the “Atlantis” story, was recently cast in an indie film called “The Whistleblower,” GateWorld reported. 

The movie films in Romania and is about the true story of a Nebraskan police officer who outs the United Nations for covering up sex trafficking. 

Hewlett plays an American U.N. peacekeeper who’s suspected of being involved in the elicit sex trade. It’s a far ways away from his nerdy scientist character in Stargate. 

“The Whistleblower” also stars Rachel Weisz, Vanessa Redgrave, David Strathairn and Monica Bellucci, so it’s the real deal. 

GateWorld also said that MGM gave Hewlett a green light on a script he’s working on. No details about that just yet.
