One played the axe-wielding President in Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, the other was a member of Dauntless in Divergent, but now Benjamin Walker and Ben Lloyd-Hughes find themselves in another fantasy adaptation.
Variety reports the two actors will join the previously-cast Pierce Brosnan, Fan Bingbing, and Kaya Scodelario in The Moon and the Sun, based on Vonda McIntyre's novel. Directed by Sean McNamara (Soul Surfer), the film follows King Louis XIV, who is determined to protect the future of France by reigning for all eternity. His search for immortality leads him to capture and steal the life force from a mermaid, but soon his 18-year-old illegitimate daughter discovers the mystical creature and strikes up a friendship with her." Suffice it to say this isn't the King Louis story you'll find on The History Channel.
The Moon and the Sun will open in 2015. [THR/Variety]
