I didn't begin to warm up to Josh Hartnett until his small but significant role in Sin City. Seeing that the actor could possibly pull off a badass, Weinstein made a wonderful decision by letting him co-star with Bruce Willis in Lucky Number Slevin. Able to pull off the duel role of innocent playboy and hardcore hitman, Hartnett easily earned himself a few more fans; including yours truly.
Keeping with his latest trend of films, Hartnett may jump into a horror adaptation.
Josh Hartnett to Enter 30 Days of Night
According to Variety, Josh Hartnett is in negotiations to star in Sony's horror adaptation 30 Days of Night.
Produced by Sam Raimi and Robert Tapert under their Ghost House banner, project is based on a 2002 graphic novel of the same name created by Steve Niles, Ben Templesmith and Ted Adams.
Story is set in Barrow, Alaska, where 30 days of continual winter darkness makes the town the perfect feeding ground for vampires.
Hartnett will play one half of a husband-wife sheriff team who have to choose between saving themselves or risking their lives to save the town's other 4,500 residents.
The premise sounds pretty sweet and, as long as Hartnett gets to wear a long, dark robe, he should make a solid addition.
Hartnett will next appear in The Black Dahlia, which Universal will release in September.
