Ghanaian child actor, Abraham Attah lands role with Anne Hathaway, Daniel Radcliffe, others in ‘Modern Ocean’


14-year old Ghanaian movie star Abraham Attah has landed another ‘major movie role’ after his breakthrough and critically acclaimed performance ‘Beasts of No Nation’ alongside Idris Elba, Ama k Abebrese and others.

Abraham, who won the Marcello Mastroianni’s Best Young Actor Award at the 2015 Venice Film Festival for his lead performance in the ‘Beasts of No Nation’ has joined the ensemble cast of Shane Carruth’s third film, ‘The Modern Ocean’. Emerging filmmaker Shane Carruth has assembled an impressive cast for the ensemble adventure drama, including Anne Hathaway, Keanu Reeves, Daniel Radcliffe, Chloe Grace Moretz, Tom Holland, Asa Butterfield, Jeff Goldblum and Abraham Attah.

The storyline revolves around vengeance and the fierce competition for valuable shipping routes and priceless materials that converge in a spectacular battle on the rolling decks of behemoth cargo ships.

“This epic tale, fraught with danger and intrigue, takes us from the ancient trading housesof Algeria to the darkest depths of the ocean floor,” said FilmNation in describing the project, which it will introduce to foreign buyers converging this week in Santa Monica for the American Film Market.

Modern Ocean is sure to draw keen interest for its cast alone.
