Brian De Palma, Christina Hendricks, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Board Thriller ‘Domino’
Hold on to your hats, folks, because today’s big announcement out of Hollywood is pretty huge. Brian De Palma, the director behind the likes of Mission: Impossible, Blow Out, and Scarface, is starting work on his next movie, and it’s going to be amazing. The contemporary thriller, titled Domino, will star Christina Hendricks and Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as two cops from different countries who both find themselves on the trail of a CIA operative.
Variety reports that the film is written by Kon-Tiki’s Petter Skavlan and will start shooting this summer. Here’s Variety’s description of the plot:
A contemporary high-voltage thriller, “Domino” stars Coster-Waldau as a Danish cop who goes rogue with the help of a fellow police officer, played by Hendricks, to track down a killer after his partner is murdered in Copenhagen while Europe is being targeted by terrorists. What the pair doesn’t know is that the assailant they are chasing is working for a CIA operative and is on the trail of the ISIS cell behind the attacks.
The project was announced just in time for Cannes, where it’ll be one of the hottest future films up for purchase at the festival. And, holy moly, this cast is already incredible. Hendricks is phenomenal in every and any role she plays, and Coster-Waldau has been doing a pretty steady job of using his Game of Thrones stardom to break into Hollywood. At least he probably gets to have two hands in this one. Hopefully.
