This man is on a roll! Whether as a Harkonnen warrior in "Dune 2" or as a pilot in the World War II series "Masters of the Air". Austin Butler belongs to a group of rising young stars who are predicted to have a great career in Hollywood. Now he is teaming up with director Darren Aronofsky to bring his new film "Caught Stealing" to life.

"Caught Stealing" is based on the novel of the same name by Charlie Huston and tells the story of Hank Thompson, a former baseball player who has to fight for his life in the New York underworld of the 1990s.

In an interview with Deadline, Darren Aronofsky expressed his enthusiasm for Butler's acting skills. He can't wait to work with him.
