Andy Garcia is getting a piece of steel. Max Steel. Ahem.
The “Untouchables” actor will join Ben Winchell (Disney’s “A.N.T. Farm,” “Necessary Roughness”) as Max McGrath and Ana Villafañe (“Hiding,” “Los Americans”) as Sofia Martinez. Garcia will play Dr. Miles Edwards, described as a brilliant and mysterious scientist. And bad guy?
The plot goes as such:
The “Max Steel” film is an in-depth “origin” story packed with captivating characters and fast-paced action. The plot chronicles the adventures of 16-year old Max McGrath and alien companion Steel, who must harness and combine their tremendous new powers to evolve into the turbo-charged superhero Max Steel. As these two unlikely friends struggle to accept their oddly connected fates, they begin to uncover unimaginable secrets, working together to find the truth, and fighting the mysterious forces threatening their world.
Stewart Hendler (“Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn,” “H+”) is directing the film from a script by “Thor: The Dark World’s” Christopher Yost.
“Max Steel” commences shooting today in Wilmington, North Carolina for a 2015 release.
