Los Angeles:’Spider-Man’ star Andrew Garfield is slated to play the lead in Ramin Bahrani`s indie drama ‘99 Homes’.
The script revolves around recent economic headlines and would see Garfield play a man who loses his house in foreclosure.
He becomes a real estate broker and start evicting home owners. As he becomes financially independent, the man`s conscience begins to trouble him, the Hollywood Reporter said.
Treehouse Pictures will be lining up Kevin Turen and Justin Nappi to produce the film.
Bahrani is an award-winning director for his film ‘Man Push Cart’ which centred around the struggle of Pakistani rockstar who turned into a street vendor in Manhattan.
Garfield is currently shooting the sequel of ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’. The 29-year-old actor recently made an appearance at Comic-Con in the garb of the web-slinging hero.
‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’, directed by Marc Webb, is set for a May 2, 2014 release.
