“The Flash” actor Grant Gustin has landed his first major movie role. He’s part of the cast of Krystal, an indie film that will have William H. Macy as director. The role of Krystal will be played by Rosario Dawson.
Deadline reports that Krystal is about man who has a heart condition that prevents him from pursuing sports or college, or falling in love. “Into his life comes Krystal. An ex-heroin addict, alcoholic, hooker, you name it. She’s on the run and she’s got a son and it becomes this unlikely love affair which of course never works out,” the synopsis read.
Work on the film will begin in April, which should already free up Gustin’s schedule on his TV show as “The Flash” goes on hiatus for the summer. It should be noted that while Grant plays a superhero on TV, his “Krystal” co-star, Dawson, is also in the comic book series “Daredevil” on Netflix.
Gustin recently participated in a TV first, which had his TV character on The CW crossing over to “Supergirl,” which airs on CBS. The special episode boosted the latter show’s ratings and there might be plans of doing the crossover again in the next season.
No word yet on when “Krystal” screens on the big screen.
