A star on the rise, Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney continues her upward trajectory to superstardom. Following memorable roles in movies like Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Hulu’s Big Time Adolescence, the young actress sets her sights on her next big feature film. As first reported by Deadline, Sweeney will next lead the cast of a crime-drama titled Silver Star.
The film hails from its writer-director Ruben Amar. Best known for the critically acclaimed Swim Little Fish Swim, Amar will produce Silver Star via his Les Films de la Fusée banner as well. Additionally, Lola Bessis (Picnic at Hanging Rock), Virginie Lacombe (The Other Son), and Jamin O’Brien (Eighth Grade) are on-board as producers as well.
The film’s plot will follow its main characters, Buddy and Franny. Buddy is a 20-year-old man recently released from jail while Franny is a down-on-her-luck pregnant 19-year-old. Following a failed attempt to rob the bank that foreclosed his childhood home, Buddy kidnaps Franny, and an unexpected, and traumatic, journey ensues. Per the initial report, Sweeney will star as Franny while the search for the actor playing Buddy is currently underway.
In a statement accompanying the casting announcement, director Ruben Amar touts Sweeney’s immense talent and what she’ll bring to the role.
“Sydney is an extraordinary actress who brings nuance and subtlety to each character she embodies. Her talent will allow her to metamorphose, with grace and talent into the very complex multifaceted Franny.”
Despite sharing a screen with Emmy Award winner Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney continuously steals every scene in HBO’s Euphoria. The universally-celebrated series has helped launch Sweeney’s career with new projects piling up for the actress. Up next, Sweeney will team with four-time Billboard Music Award winner Halsey for a new series titled The Player’s Table. Additionally, Sweeney will star alongside Justice Smith in the upcoming erotic thriller The Voyeurs and lead the cast for HBO‘s The White Lotus.
