Caleb Landry Jones (Banshee in X-Men: First Class), Saoirse Ronan and Gemma Arterton have been cast in Neil Jordan's Byzantium. Variety reports that Jones has will play the male lead in the film, which is based on Moira Buffini's play. THR reports that Ronan and Arterton will play a "mother and daughter who are vampires and arrive in a small British town revealing their secret to the town. Jones plays a teenager dying of leukemia which in turns forces him to struggle with his mortality, causing Saorsie Ronan's character to struggle with her own immortality."
Buffini also wrote the script with Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley producing. I like Landy in X-Men and The Last Exorcism and am happy to see him getting more roles. Ronan and Arterton are great too, so this is cast is shaping up nicely. What are your thoughts on this news?
