Jared Leto to star in new film by Martin Z

American actor Jared Leto is set to star in The Outsider, an action-thriller from director Martin Zandvliet, who recently picked up acclaim for his Danish film Land of Mine.

The Outsider tells the story of an imprisoned American soldier (Leto), who is released with the help of his yakuza cellmate. Now free, he sets out to earn their respect and repay his debt while navigating the criminal underworld.

This is Martin Zandvliet’s first English-language film.
