WASHINGTON: Actor Karen Gillan, who will be seen in the upcoming MCU flick ‘Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3’, has joined the cast of the book-to-film crime drama film ‘Sleeping Dogs’.
According to Variety, an American media company, she will be joining previously announced cast member Russell Crowe. Other actors Marton Csokas, Harry Greenwood, and Thomas M Wright. The movie will shoot in Australia next month.
The film ‘Sleeping Dogs’ is based on E.O. Chirovici’s critically acclaimed novel ‘The Book of Mirrors,’ with a screenplay by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage. Cooper also makes his feature directorial debut with the project.
Variety has reported that Crowe’s character, a former homicide investigator, in the wake of an innovative Alzheimer’s treatment, is charged with revisiting a horrible murder case from his past–the gruesome murder of a college professor (Csokas).
The detective asks his former partner to assist him in reviving the inquiry as he struggles to retrieve his memories.
