Callan McAuliffe has started gaining notices and attention with his performance as a young Gatsby in 'The Great Gatsby'. His performance carried charisma, charm, and no small amount of acting skill, and has landed him on many 'Actors To Watch' lists across the web. Although he's mostly been known for bit parts in larger movies, that may all change with 'Our Robot Overlords'.
Prior to The Great Gatsby, Callan was best known for his performances in films like 'Flipped' and 'I Am Number Four', where he was arguably one of the best parts of both films. However, he has just landed the lead role in 'Our Robot Overlords', which is a sci-fi film set in a robot-controlled dystopia.
Gillian Anderson and Ben Kingsley are already attached to star in the film, which finds Earth under the control of robots after an invasion. Humans are being controlled by implants and confined to their homes, but Callan's character [with the help of some friends] managed to find a way around the implant and sets off to find his 'long-lost father'.
The film might introduce Callan McAuliffe to a whole new set of audiences, but even if it doesn't, he also has 'Kite' and 'Beneath The Harvest Sky' in post-production.
