Leslie Odom Jr. will star in Takashi Doscher’s upcoming film Only. According to Deadline, the Hamilton Tony winner and Freida Pinto will play a young couple fighting for survival in a dystopian Earth where a plague threatens female extinction.
The movie will also star Chandler Riggs and Jayson Warner Smith. Gideon Tadmor and Jim Kaufman will executive produce.
Following his Tony Award-winning performance as Aaron Burr in Hamilton, Odom Jr. co-starred in the remake of Murder on the Orient Express. He will also appear in Sister, directed by Sia (who, coincidentally, also has ties to Hamilton), and is slated to perform at the Super Bowl in February.
