A bit of casting news has come in for Vigilandia, Platinum Dunes’ latest film with Universal. A female lead has been found, and there’s no doubt she’s gonna kick some serious ass. Well, at least we hope so.
According to Variety “Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey has landed the female lead in Universal’s Vigilandia, starring Ethan Hawke.
James DeMonaco will direct from a script he penned. Plot details of the sci-fi thriller are being kept under wraps. Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller, and Andrew Form will produce through Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes along with Why Not Prods. Sebastien Lemercier exec produces.
Universal recently came on as producer of the pic, the first film under its first-look deal with Blumhouse. While Platinum Dunes has been known for making pricey films, Vigilandia represents its first foray into really low-budgeted fare. Sources say the budget would be similar to that of FilmDistrict’s Insidious or the upcoming Sinister.
Maybe they can get it right this time?
