Last month, HN Entertainment reported that Game of Thrones actress Lena Headey was being eyed for a lead role in Karen Gillan’s all-female assassination flick Gunpowder Milkshake, who we believed could be playing the assassin mother of Karen’s character based on the synopsis we were able to dig up.
HN Entertainment is now hearing from sources that British actress Lena Headey (Dredd, Game of Thrones, 300) is in the mix to join confirmed lead Karen Gillan. We also got our hands on some first meaty details on the film’s plot, that may reveal that Lena could be up for the role of Gillan’s assassin mother in the action flick.
A young woman and her estranged mother (both assassins) must join forces on the run to take down a male-dominated crime syndicate they used to work for.
Deadline has now confirmed our Lena Headey casting report from five days ago and that she’s landed a part in the action pic.
Filming is expected to begin this April in Berlin, Germany.
Gunpowder Milkshake will be directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, the Israeli directing duo behind the foreign language revenge thriller Big Bad Wolves.
A release date has yet to be announced for Gunpowder Milkshake, but we suspect that it could drop sometime in late 2019 or early 2020.
