Deadline.com had reported on March 11, 2015, that Crawford has landed a lead role in the upcoming ABC’s pilot Boom where he is set to play the role of Billy. The show is about the discovery of the biggest oil Boom in North Dakota, and how the young ambitious and married couple, Billy (played by Chace Crawford) and Kelly (played by Rebecca Rittenhouse) in search of a fortune and better life at the oil field bakkens after one big accident changes their lives forever by not just leaving them broke but also in a heavy debt. The upcoming drama is directly by the talented director Rodes Fishburne and written by writer Josh Pate. The filming of ABc pilot Bo is said to have begun last week.
Crawford has three other films (Undrafted, Eloise and Untitled Warren Beatty Project) in post- production mode which are set to release later this year. Crawford plays the lead in all the three movies.
Undrafted is a comedy, family, drama and sports movie which follows the lives of the collegiate best friends. The independent drama film is directed and written by Joe Mazzello who is also starring in the movie as a character named Pat Murray. According to Joe Mazzello the film is based on a true story about his younger brother, John Mazzello who does not get drafted in the Major League Draft after working hard for years to get his dreams to come true. Chace Crawford plays the role of Arthur Barone.
It was reported on April 25, 2014 that Crawford had landed the lead role of Jacob Martin in the psychological thriller film called Eloise. The film was directed by Robert Legato and written by Chris Borrelli. The movie that was filmed at the Eloise asylum is about four good friends who break into an asylum so Jacob could get an inheritance of the death certificate. Once inside the asylum, they discover the truth about their tragical past. The movie is set to release this year with no specific date released just yet.
Then there’s the third film called “Untitled Warren Beatty Project” that Crawford will be starring in. The character that he is set to play is unknown, but I hope it’s a good one. The film is directed by Warren Beatty, yes you heard me right Warren Beatty. The film follows the story of the late Billionaire Howard Hughes and the relationship he had with a much younger actress in the 1950s. Howard Hughes is played by Warren Beatty himself and Marla Mabrey by Lilly Collins. The movie finished the production last year and will hopefully hit the theatres thus year, if all gies well. If not then we will have to wait a little longer. The film also stars Taissa Farmigga, Matthew Broderick, Alec Baldwin, Alden Ehrenreich and Watren Beatty’s real life wife Annette Benning who will be also playing his on screen wife.
The last time we saw our favorite star on screen was in 2014, when he starred in an episode of Glee in season 6 as Biff McIntosh and Cooper in the nominated film Mountain Men opposite actor Tyler Labine. The film is said to have received great reviews, isn’t that great?
