The Chain: Jamie Bell, Margaret Qualley to star in adaptation

Jamie Bell (Billy Elliott, Donnybrook, Skin) and Margaret Qualley (The Leftovers, Fosse/Verdon, IO) will be starring in director Tim Sutton’s (Dark Night, Pavilion, Memphis) upcoming thriller The Chain, Deadline has confirmed. Denise Gough (Colette) and Sebastian Stan (Avengers: Infinity War) are also in talks to join the feature adaptation.

Based on the award-winning short story by Tobias Wolff and adapted by Sutton, The Chain follows the story of a man’s daughter who is viciously attacked by a dog, setting off a chain of events that ends in unspeakable tragedy. Bell, Qualley, and Sutton previously worked together on the drama Donnybrook, releasing on February 15.

Rumble Films’ David Lancaster (Whiplash, Nightcrawler, Eye in the Sky) and Stephanie Wilcox (Small Crimes, Donnybrook) will produce. Voltage Pictures has boarded international sales on the project. Production on The Chain is scheduled to begin in April.

“The incomparable Tobias Wolff is one of my favorite authors and we’re even bigger fans of Jamie Bell since working with him on the powerful feature Skin,” said Jonathan Deckter, president and COO of Voltage. “We’re thrilled to partner with our friends at Rumble Films to bring Tim Sutton’s adaptation to audiences around the world. It ticks all the boxes for a strong, international commercial contender so we could not be happier to be representing The Chain.”

Bell recently starred in Skin, Sutton’s Donnybrook, AMC’s TURN: Washington’s Spies, Fantastic Four, and Snowpiercer. His upcoming projects include Rocketman and The Adventures of Tintin: Prisoners of the Sun.
