Karen Gillan To Headline Assassin Action Film Gunpowder Milkshake



Doctor Who alum Karen Gillan has joined StudioCanal’s forthcoming assassin-focused action flick Gunpowder Milkshake.

The Scottish actress, who broke out in Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy franchise, and also toplined Jumanji: Welcome to The Jungle alongside Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, and Jack Black, will lead the flick which has been described as a stylish and violent entry in the assassin genre, with a story that spans multiple generations. The entire cast will supposedly be all-female, with Gillan the lynchpin.

Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, the team who helmed dark Israeli picture Big Bad Wolves, are directing the project. The pair also wrote the script with Ehud Lavski.

Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle 2 is slated to shoot in February, in which Karen Gillan will return, and then the idea is for Gunpowder Milkshake to go to shoot swiftly after.
