Outer Banks’ Drew Starkey has been tapped to star alongside Daniel Craig in a new LGBTQ+ drama. Back in December, Deadline revealed that Craig secured the lead role in Luca Guadagnino’s upcoming film adaptation of Queer.
Written by William S. Burrough, the short novel follows Lee (Craig), a man who travels to Mexico City to escape his drug-fueled life in the US.
While navigating the diverse city and his emerging heroin withdrawal, Lee becomes infatuated with a young American serviceman named Alberton, who’s dealing with his own set of drug-induced problems.
At the time of the announcement, Craig was the only actor attached to the film. However on 21 April, Variety announced that Starkey would be joining the No Time To Die star as Lee’s love interest Alberton.
