The cast for Gunpowder Milkshake is shaping up to be very interesting with news that Game of Thrones’ Lena Headey will be joining Karen Gillan in the action movie, which is still in its nascent stages.
Karen Gillan has gone from strength to strength since leaving her iconic role as Amy Pond in Doctor Who, starring in everything from horror films to Jumanji to embodying the intimidating Nebula, and even directing her own critically acclaimed film The Party’s Just Beginning.
Along with Gillan, Lena Headey joins directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado on the movie. The directors co-wrote the script with Ehud Lavski. The story is mostly being kept a secret, but it generally revolves around hired killers and follows multiple generations with Gillan acting as the cornerstone of the narrative.
We’re not sure yet what Lena Headey’s role will be in the film, but shooting is set to begin this spring in Berlin. While Karen Gillan is busy as ever with a new Jumanji movie on the way and Avengers: Endgame up ahead, we are all of course waiting with bated breath for Lena Headey’s return as Cersei Lannister in the eighth and final season of Game of Thrones.
