Former VMAN cover star and frequent V contributor Alex Pettyfer is one of Hollywood's best kept secrets - and his latest role is one of the industry's most highly-anticipated secrets itself.

Pettyfer is nearing the release of his next movie venture in the independent drama The Strange Ones, co-written and directed by Christopher Radcliffe and Lauren Wolkstein. Though details are still largely under wraps, early screenings ahead of its wide release are seeing rave reviews, highlighting Pettyfer's haunting performance, quite unlike what he has done in the past.

The Strange Ones sees the star as a rugged man, in a much rougher look than his typical chiseled appearance, on a mysterious road trip alongside a young boy played by up-and-comer James Freedson-Jackson. With the ambiguous indie's dark intonation and foreboding aura, the first half of the film is said to only slowly and eerily reveal the status of their relationship - whether they are brothers on a trip to a woods or if Pettyfer is even more of a predator than he appears is simply unknown. But later, the film is set to take a turn for the worse revealing that their voyage into the dark woods may become a trip to an altered reality.

The trailer for the SXSW-premiered film was recently released on Wednesday, Oct. 25, setting the scene for the stirring story in ghostly Northwestern woods as young Freedson-Jackson is shown questioning what appears to be a bed of lies Pettyfer's character has built. It is utterly elusive and Pettyfer like we've never seen him before.
