Sean Bean has joined the cast of "The Island" for DreamWorks and director
Michael Bay. Bean, who played Boromir in "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy,
will take on the part of Merick, the chief antagonist in the film, which
stars Ewan McGregor and Scarlett Johansson. The script by Caspian
Tredwell-Owen centers on a harvested being who becomes self-aware
and tries to escape the utopia where he lives. Alex Kurtzman and
Roberto Orci co-wrote the script. Marc Haimes is overseeing for the
studio. Bean will next appear in "Flightplan" opposite Jodie Foster.
He recently completed the lead role in "The Dark," playing opposite
Maria Bello, and can be seen in "National Treasure." Bean is repped
by CAA, Seven Summits and ICM in London.
