Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford will play a South African man accused of murder in a new independent film based on an acclaimed 1998 novel by Nobel Prize winning South African author Nadine Gordimer.

The House Gun tells the story of a wealthy, liberal South African, played by Pierce Brosnan, who hires a black lawyer to defend his son Duncan (Crawford) when he is accused of killing his friend in the early years of post-apartheid South Africa.

Crawford plays Nate Archibald in the teen drama Gossip Girl.
