Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Christina Hendricks to star in new Brian De Palma project

Game Of Thrones / Mad Men

According to The Hollywood Reporter, prestige TV veterans Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (from Game Of Thrones) and Christina Hendricks (from Mad Men) are in talks to star in a new thriller from Brian De Palma. The movie is called Domino, and it’s about a police officer in Copenhagen whose partner is murdered, driving him to team up with another cop who happens to be the dead partner’s mistress in hopes of getting revenge. Unfortunately, they end up getting “caught in a cat-and-mouse chase with a duplicitous CIA agent,” so this won’t be one of those straightforward quests for vengeance. If these talks work out, Coster-Waldau will play the cop and Hendricks will play the other cop, but the Hollywood Reporter story doesn’t say who might play the duplicitous CIA agent.

Domino was written by Kon-Tiki‘s Petter Skavlan, and along with Chinese thriller Lights Out, it will be one of De Palma’s first movies since 2012’s Passion.
