Ben Platt Joins Damian Lewis and Nina Dobrev In ‘Run This Town’

Ben Platt continues to fill up his post-Dear Evan Hansen schedule. Just recently he signed on to star in a new film titled Love & Oatmeal, in addition, to a leading role on Ryan Murphy’s upcoming Netflix series starring Barbara Streisand and Gwyneth Paltrow. Now he’s got a new movie on the horizon with Emmy winner Damian Lewis (Billions, Homeland), Nina Dobrev (The Vampire Diaries), and Mena Massoud (Aladdin live-action) titled Run This Town.

Run This Town follows “a young journalist (Platt), desperate to prove himself, who catches wind of a scandal involving a flashy, unpredictable politician with no filter (Lewis). Political aides (Massoud and Dobrev) attempt to keep their boss in check – and the story under wraps – in order to save their jobs.”

The film was written by Ricky Tollman, who will also be making his feature film directorial debut. It will be produced by Randy Manis (Lawless) and Jonathan Bronfman (The Witch).
