Juston Street Comes to the Big Easy for ‘Deepwater Horizon’

by Jordan McGuire on June 8, 2015


Juston Street will come to New Orleans to join Mark Wahlberg, Kurt Russell, John Malkovich, Kate Hudson and Dylan O’Brian. The Pete Berg-directed film has already begun principle photography in New Orleans. Lionsgate has released a first look photo of an oil-soaked Mark Wahlberg in character.

This will mark (pun intended) the second time Pete Berg and Mark Wahlberg have teamed up as the two worked on Lone Survivor, the inspirational true story of Marcus Luttrell. The BP oil spill drama is based off of “Deepwater Horizon’s Final Hour,” the ┬áNew York Timesarticle written by David Barstow. Peter Berg will also be reconnecting with the film’s scribe Matthew Michael Carnahan, the two collaborated on The Kingdom together.

Juston Street will play Gervasio, a rescue boat worker called to duty, travelling the fiery waters to aid the oil rig workers. You can see Street in Richard Linklater’s That’s What I’m Talking About and in Angelo Pizzo’s My All American.

The oil rig explosion film is expected to be released in September 2016. For more information and a possible job opportunity on the New Orleans-shot Deepwater Horizon film visit jobScene here.
