He has also had important roles on a number of other projects including 'Black Hawk Down', 'Lucky Number Slevin', '40 Days and 40 Nights', and the horror TV series 'Penny Dreadful'. In the movie, Hartnett will be playing the role of struggling writer John Ecas, who is working as the biographer for a rich but reclusive man when the events of the movie take place.
