Joris Jarsky (Saw V, Vampire High), Sheila Houlahan (Z Nation, The Wonderland Murders) and Sofia Vassilieva (My Sister’s Keeper, Black Lightning) are the latest to join Warner Bros’ thriller The Little Things starring Oscar winners Denzel Washington, Jared Leto and Rami Malek. Written and directed by John Lee Hancock, the plot follows Deke (Washington), a burned-out Kern County, CA deputy sheriff who teams with Baxter (Malek), a crack LASD detective, to nab a serial killer. Deke’s nose for the “little things” proves eerily accurate, but his willingness to circumvent the rules embroils Baxter in a soul-shattering dilemma. Meanwhile, Deke must wrestle with a dark secret from his past. Jarsky is repped by Grandview and ART Agency; Houlahan by Hartman Entertainment; Vassilieva by Greene & Associates Talent Agency and Lighthouse Management & Media.
Matthew Glave (First Man) and Hunter Sansone (Star Girl) have joined Reginald Hudlin’s Disney+ drama Safety, which is inspired by the true story of former Clemson safety Ray McElrathbey.

Jay Reeves will star as Ray, with Thaddeus J. Mixson and Corinne Foxx also starring. The pic is shooting on location in South Carolina as well as Atlanta. Randy McKinnon and Nick Santora co-wrote the script. Mark Ciardi is producing.
