THE GIRL ON THE TRAIN
A natural talent with a striking presence, HALEY BENNETT
(Megan) is quickly establishing herself as one of Hollywood's most dynamic
Bennett stars in several highly anticipated films this fall. First up is
Antoine Fuqua's The Magnificent Seven opposite Denzel Washington and Chris
Pratt. The film, which is based on the 1960 western of the same name, is about a
group of gunmen who band together in order to save a poor village from savage
thieves. Sony Pictures will release the film on September 23. She also co-stars
in Warren Beatty's Rules Don't Apply, which is loosely based on an affair Howard
Hughes had in his later years of life and will be released by 20th Century Fox
on November 23.
Bennett recently wrapped production on Thank You for Your Service starring
opposite Miles Teller, which is the directorial debut of Academy
Award-nominated writer Jason Hall (American Sniper). The film follows a group
of U.S. soldiers returning from Iraq who struggle to integrate back into family
and civilian life, while living with the memory of a war that threatens to
destroy them long after they have left the battlefield. The film will be
released by DreamWorks in 2017. Bennett also recently filmed Terrence Malick's
Weightless opposite Christian Bale and Michael Fassbender.
Bennett was last seen in Hardcore Henry, a first-person action film from the
eyes of Henry, who is resurrected from death with no memory and must discover
his identity and save his wife from a warlord with a plan to bio-engineer
soldiers. Her other film credits include Antoine Fuqua's hit film The Equalizer,
which also starred Washington and ChloĆ« Grace Moretz; Gregg Araki's festival
darling Kaboom, which also starred Thomas Dekker and Juno Temple and premiered
at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2010 as well as Sundance the
following year; Sleepwalking in the Rift, a series of vignettes directed by Cary
Joji Fukunaga; and the title role in The Weinstein Company's Kristy, an elevated
genre film from the producers of Half Nelson and Blue Valentine.
Bennett made her on-screen debut opposite Drew Barrymore and Hugh Grant in
Marc Lawrence's Music and Lyrics. She then went on to star in David Frankel's
Marley & Me, which also starred Jennifer Aniston and Owen Wilson; Arcadia Lost,
which also starred Carter Jenkins and Nick Nolte; and Shekhar Kapur's short film
Passage, opposite Lily Cole and Julia Stiles, which premiered to critical
acclaim at the prestigious Venice Film Festival.
