Hacienda Film Co. has cast Matthew Ziff in Truck Stop, a new action-packed feature film starring Juno Temple (Killer Joe and Kaboom) and Evan Peters (American Horror Story). Ziff will play bad boy Kyle in the film, written and directed by Tony Aloupis.
Truck Stop, currently in production, is set in the 1970’s and follows the coming-of-age relationship of a disturbed runaway (Temple) and a high school kid with cerebral palsy (Peters), who is the object of Kyle’s bullying.
“This is a great story that will strike chords with teens, parents and anyone who loves movies,” said Ziff. “I’m thrilled to be working with such a top-notch cast and crew.”
Though still under 25, Ziff is an entertainment veteran of more than 20 years. He began modeling at two months and by age 10 had appeared on both Late Night with David Letterman and Late Night with Conan O’Brien. He has filmed eight movies, with three more in production, and has been cast in films with veteran actors such as Rosanna Arquette, Michael Biehn, Gary Busey, Martin Kove and John Schneider. Ziff is also executive producer and star of the feature film Six Gun Savior, a fantasy western.
