Grace Byers has landed a role in the movie Bent alongside Sofia Vergara, Karl Urban and Andy Garcia.

Various outlets are reporting that the movie starts filming in Italy this month.

It makes sense because Byers and her husband Trai both recently posted photos from the Coliseum in Rome.

According to Variety:  “Story follows a shamed and discredited narcotics detective who, upon his release from prison, makes plans to seek revenge on the accuser who framed him and killed his partner.   Byers will play a jazz singer and lounge owner who gets caught up in a police conspiracy. Ambi Entertainment is on board to finance and produce “Bent.” Moresco and David Guillod will also produce.”

No word on when the film comes out so for now we’ll just have to watch Byers slay as Anika Calhoun on the hit TV show, Empire.
