'Hurt Locker' Star Brian Geraghty To Climb 'Kilimanjaro'

After a break-out turn in Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker," where he went toe-to-toe with Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty hasn't exactly risen at the same trajectory as his two former co-stars; his most high-profile roles to date are in the yet-be-released ensemble rom-com "Ten Year" and the universally-panned horror flick "ATM."

After a break-out turn in Kathryn Bigelow's "The Hurt Locker," where he went toe-to-toe with Jeremy Renner and Anthony Mackie, Brian Geraghty hasn't exactly risen at the same trajectory as his two former co-stars; his most high-profile roles to date are in the yet-be-released ensemble rom-com "Ten Year" and the universally-panned horror flick "ATM."

We certainly had high hopes for the young actor, even championing him for the lead in 'Captain America' when that role was up for grabs. On the horizon, he has a supporting turn in Robert Zemeckis' "Flight," which should prove another opportunity for him to shine, and the actor remains prominent in the indie scene with a handful of films, including two from helmer Chris Nelson (the classily titled double of "Gay Dude" & "Ass Backwards") and a starring role opposite Krysten Ritter in "Refuge."

Geraghty will now add another interesting string to his bow with a starring role in "Kilimanjaro," which will see him play a man determined to climb the titular African mountain (pictured above) after a recent break up. Little known filmmaker Walter Strafford will direct from a script he wrote, with lensing to begin in New York next month.

It's no Marvel blockbuster, but we guess it'll do. Seriously, someone needs to give this guy a shot at the big time. [THR]
