Alexis Bledel, Kurt Russell, Beau Knapp to star in Crypto thriller

Reset your passwords and change your pin number, because Alexis Bledel (THE HANDMAID'S TALE), Kurt Russell (GUARDIANS OF THE GALXY VOL. 2), and Beau Knapp (THE NICE GUYS) have just signed on to star in a new money laundering thriller from director John Stalberg Jr. entitled CRYPTO. Written by Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio, the upcoming film is based on an original story by Jeffrey Ingber. Hailed as a thriller with pangs of THE FIRM and THE GIRL WITH THE DRAGON TATTOO running through its veins, CRYPTO centers on a young anti-money laundering agent (Knapp) tasked with investigating a tangled web of corruption and fraud in his remote New York hometown, where his father (Russell) and brother (Hemswoth) are struggling to maintain their family farm in a changing economic landscape. The agent quickly finds himself enmeshed in a dangerous underworld populated by a mysterious art dealer (Bledel), a crypto-currency enthusiast turned cyber-sleuth (Harris) and a corrupt accountant doing the bidding of ruthless clients (Kartheiser).

Also set to appear in the film alongside Bledel, Russell, and Knapp are Luke Hemsworth (WESTWORLD), Jeremie Harris (LEGION) and Vincent Kartheiser (MAD MEN). Upon its release, CRYPTO will present Stalberg's sophomore effort in the director's chair - after his debut film, HIGH SCHOOL, starring Adrien Brody and Colin Hanks, received high praise at the Sundance Film Festival. After arriving in theaters, HIGH SCHOOL achieved a cult following during its run, making Stalberg a talent to keep tabs on.

“I am overjoyed to be working with such an incredible cast to bring this timely, thrilling story to life,” remarked Stalberg. “Beau is incredibly talented, and seeing him bring this character to life opposite talent like Alexis, Kurt, Luke, Jeremie and Vincent has been a dream come true."

CRYPTO is currently filming in New York.
