Australian actor Callan McAuliffe, who played the young Jay Gatsby in "The Great Gatsby," will star in indie film "Hacker."

Sanzhar Sultanov is producing "Hacker" and Akan Satayev is directing. Shooting is set to begin on Nov. 28 in Toronto, Dubai, Thailand and New York.

McAuliffe will play an intelligent and amoral computer genius who joins an underground network of computer-based criminals known as DarkWeb in an effort to uncover the identity of the org's master hacker.

McAuliffe will soon be seen in the remake of the Japanese anime "Kite" alongside Samuel Jackson, and in the U.K. sci-fier "Our Robot Overlords" with Ben Kingsley and Gillian Anderson.

He is repped by CAA, RGM, and Felker, Toczek, Gellman and Suddelson.
