Jackie Earle Haley, soon to be a recognized name everywhere (or at least, among the land of geeks) once Zack Snyder’s “Watchmen” opens, has joined the cast of Martin Scorsese’s “Ashecliffe”, formerly known as “Shutter Island”. Also taking a trip to the mysterious island movie are veteran Max von Sydow and the comely Emily Mortimer.
The story revolves around two U.S. marshals (DiCaprio and Ruffalo) who travel to a Massachusetts island to investigate the disappearance of a patient from a hospital for the criminally insane. Chaos ensues for the two as they encounter a web of deceit, a hurricane and a deadly inmate riot that leaves them trapped on the island.
Von Sydow will play one of the hospital’s physicians, while Mortimer will play Rachel, an escaped hospital patient. Haley will play an inmate.
Everyone gets on the island March 6 for the start of production.
