Nick Stahl is best known for his roles in Terminator 3 as John Connor, and as the lead character in HBO's incredible unfinished TV series Carnivale. HBO... I would really love to see the rest of that story, and how it all ends! You totally left us hanging!
Stahl really hasn't done a lot since the show, and I'm not sure why, he's a talented actor. It's been announced that that he will be taking on the lead role in a new film being produced by Splice director Vincenzo Natali. The thriller is called 388 Arletta Ave., and it will be written and directed by Randall Cole.
Here is a description of the film from the director:
(The film) Plays with the notion that if you could scratch to beneath the surface of what most supposedly ordinary people present to the world, and even to themselves, you would find very interesting and possibly very dark things. If exploited, some of those things could even result in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, as it does for our lead character.
Sounds like an interesting concept. What do you all think?
Here's the official Press Release:

"388 Arletta Avenue : ) is a wickedly smart mystery-thriller," says executive producer Vincenzo Natali. "And it's a story that could not have existed until recently, thanks to the astonishing and invasive technology that is now widely available. The fact that it is possible makes it truly terrifying."
"388 Arletta Avenue : ) plays with the notion that if you could scratch to beneath the surface of what most supposedly ordinary people present to the world, and even to themselves, you would find very interesting and possibly very dark things," says Randall Cole. "If exploited, some of those things could even result in a deadly game of cat-and-mouse, as it does for our lead character."
