Valerian Star Dane DeHaan To Play Billy The Kid

Dane DeHaan will travel from the universe of Valerian to the Wild West.

Deadline reports that the star of Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets will play Billy the Kid in The Kid, a Western that will mark the directorial debut of Vincent D'Onofrio. Ethan Hawke co-stars in upcoming flick from Suretone Pictures.

Written by Andrew Lanham (The Shack), the movie focuses on a young boy who reaches out to the infamous gunfighter for help saving his family.

He went on to star in 2012's Chronicle, played Harry Osborn in The Amazing Spider-Man 2 and portrayed James Dean in the drama Life. Earlier this year, he starred in the Gore Verbinski thriller A Cure for Wellness.
