The hero of The Mummy weighs 270 kilos: Brendan Fraser is unrecognizable in the new film by Darren Aronofsky – Actus Ciné

Discover the 1st photo of Brendan Fraser in the film “The Whale” by Darren Aronofsky. The actor embodies a man of 270 kilos suffering from morbid obesity.

Selected in Competition at the 79th Venice Film Festival to be held from August 31 to September 10, The Whale by Darren Aronofsky is revealed through a first photo.

Brendan Fraser (The Mummy) is unrecognizable there. Adapted from the play by Samuel D. Hunter (2012), The Whale is set in a Mormon town in Idaho. Charlie, a morbidly obese man weighing 600 pounds, hides in his apartment and feeds, hoping to die. He is desperate to reconnect with his daughter. Soon, he befriends a sharp-tongued and very unhappy teenager.

The actor will give the answer here to Sadie Sink (Stranger Things), Samantha Morton (The Walking Dead), Ty Simpkins (Insidious) and Hong Chau (Downsizing).

When the project was announced in October 2021, Brendan Fraser told the site Unilad : “This is something you have never seen before. That’s really all I can tell you… The wardrobe and costumes were extensive. It’s a far cry from anything I’ve done so far.”

Produced by A24, the feature film marks the return of Darren Aronofsky behind the camera 5 years after The Mother with Jennifer Lawrence and especially that of Brendan Fraser in a leading role.

The actor was absent from the screens for many years due to health problems and after being the victim of a sexual assault.

Why did Brendan Fraser disappear from the screens?

The Whale should mark its return to the front of the stage. The actor will also appear in the casting of Martin Scorsese’s film, Killers of the Flower Moon and Batgirl in which he plays one of Batman’s enemies, Pyrovol (Firefly in English).

The Whale will be released on February 22, 2023 in France.
