Warm Bodies star Nicholas Hoult joins Kill Your Friends

03.04.2014by: Eric Walkuski

Last time we had an update on the killer dark comedy KILL YOUR FRIENDS was in October of 2012, when it was being reported Rafe Spall had joined the cast. But things seem to have changed drastically since, as now Screen Daily has passed along the news of a casting switch.

Nicholas Hoult (WARM BODIES, X-MEN: FIRST CLASS) will star as the murderous anti-hero of KILL YOUR FRIENDS, which is based on the book by John Niven. Jim Piddock has also boarded the film.

Here's the book's official synopsis:

Meet Steven Stelfox. London 1997: New Labour is sweeping into power and Britpop is at its zenith. A&R man Stelfox is slashing and burning his way through the music industry, fuelled by greed and inhuman quantities of cocaine, searching for the next hit record amid a relentless orgy of self-gratification.

But as the hits dry up and the industry begins to change, Stelfox must take the notion of cut throat business practices to murderous new levels in a desperate attempt to salvage his career.

Owen Harris is directing the morbid project, which commences production next month in the UK.

Extra Tidbit: Hoult just happens to be the lucky SOB who dates Jennifer Lawrence (pictured above).
