Austin Swift, Taylor Swift’s Brother, To Star In Indie Comedy ‘Whaling’
AUSTIN SWIFT TO STAR IN INDIE FILM
The film was co-written by Pretty Little Liars star Tammin Sursok and her husband Sean McEwen. Starring alongside Swift will be Harry Potter villain Tom Felton and comedian David Koechner. The rest of the cast has yet to be announced, but an Instagram post from Wendi McLendon Covey showed a photo of some. Sursok posted her own photo to announce Swift’s casting, saying more “amazing cast announcements coming soon.”
Swift is no stranger to big names. He’s already been in films with Pierce Brosnan in I.T., and Elle Fanning, and Ben Affleck in Live by Night. Whaling is a dark comedy about a dysfunctional brother/sister duo who are forced together when their mother dies. They journey on a road trip to scatter the mom’s ashes in a particular way. Swift’s casting was announced on Friday, and he will play a “small town hustler.”
The film just began shooting in Oklahoma and has no release date as of yet.
