Karen Gillan

Karen Gillan is signing on for a new film, Adam Cooper’s Sleeping Dogs.

Gillan, 35, will star alongside Russell Crowe, Marton Csokas, Harry Greenwood, and Thomas M. Wright in the crime drama, which is set to start filming in Australia in just a few weeks. The film is an adaptation of the acclaimed novel The Book of Mirrors by E.O. Chirovici. And the script is being written by Bill Collage along with director Adam Cooper. 

The story follows Roy Freeman, who Crowe will play. He’s a former homicide detective who is undergoing  cutting-edge treatment for Alzheimer’s. During this time, he’s asked to re-examine a horrific murder case from his past,  the killing of a college professor (Csokas).

As Freeman struggles to regain his memory, he calls on his former partner to help him revisit the case. And as they take a fresh look at the investigation, the duo encounters a mysterious woman, played by Gillan, as well as a terrifying reality that changes Freeman’s view of the world forever.

Fans Can See Karen Gillan Next in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

There’s no planned release date yet for Sleeping Dogs. Though, fans of Gillan can see her next in Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) flick Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3, where she’ll return to play Nebula once again.

Gillan has made it clear that she’s a big fan of the new Guardians script, authored by director James Gunn.

“I read that script with Pom Klementieff, who plays Mantis. We read it together, and we both cried and laughed. But there were full tears. It’s incredible, I think it’s James’ strongest work yet with the Guardians and it’s just brilliant,” Gillan notes. “It’s brilliant and it’s emotional and it’s funny. And it’s all of those things that you want.”
