Brenton Thwaites is set to star in 'Entry Level'.

The 27-year-old actor has been cast as the lead role in the indie action thriller, which will be directed by Franck Khalfoun.

'Entry Level' will see Brenton star as Marcus Delany, a young man who mysteriously wakes up in a high-security office building. He is then contacted by a stranger and forced to complete a strictly timed series of dangerous tasks that will place him in the world of deadly crime, and will have serious global consequences.

As of yet, there is no actor locked down to play the mysterious stranger, with Brenton being the only cast member to have been announced.

The script for the project is being written by Benjamin Hurley, and Practical Pictures are sending in Craig Perry and Sheila Taylor - who previously worked on the 'Final Destination' and 'American Pie' franchises - to produce alongside Tom Butterfield of Content Media.

Dan Spilo of Industry Entertainment will serve as the executive producer, and 13 Films will handle international financing, including selling the production to buyers at the American Film Market.

For Brenton, 'Entry Level' joins a long list of new projects he's lined up. The 'Oculus' star - who will next be seen in Disney's 'Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales' - has also scored roles in Perry Lang's 'An Interview With God', zombie comedy 'Office Uprising', Todd Komarnicki's drama 'The God Four', and Disney's sequel to 'Maleficent'.

Although there is no set release date for 'Entry Level' just yet, the production is set to start filming in early 2017.
