Game of Thrones star Nicolaj Coster-Waldau and Mad Men star Christina Hendricks are in talks to star in veteran director Brian De Palma's thriller Domino.
Petter Skavlan (Kon-Tiki, Sophie's World) wrote the script for the film. The story follows a Copenhagen police officer (Coster-Waldau) who is seeking justice for his partner's murder by a mysterious man called Imran. He teams up with a fellow cop and his late partner's mistress (Hendricks), to hunt Imran down, but are unwittingly caught in a cat and mouse chase with a duplicitous CIA agent that will take them from Scandinavia to the sun-drenched landscapes of Spain.
The film is produced by Michel Schonnemann for Schonne Film in Denmark and co-produced by Antonio Perez Perez' Maestranza in Spain and Jaqueline de Gooeij for Zilvermeer in Belgium. Backup is wrapping the financing the film, and IM Global will introduce the project to buyers in Cannes this month. ICM will represent the film for North America, and negotiated the financing and packaged the film.
Coster-Waldau is known for playing Jaime Lannister on HBO's hit show Game of Thrones. His film credits include Gods of Egypt, horror hit Mama, sci-fi film Oblivion and comedy The Other Woman. He's repped by WME and Lindberg Management in Denmark.
Along with playing Joan on the hit AMC series Mad Men, Hendricks has appeared on the big screen in Dark Places, Nicolas Winding Refn's The Neon Demon and comedy Fist Fight. Her upcoming credits include The Burning Woman with Sienna Miller and Aaron Paul and Gilles Paquet-Brenner's Crooked House. She is repped by ICM, Independent Talent Group and LINK Entertainment.
De Palma is known for directing such iconic films as Scarface, 1996's Mission:Impossible and The Untouchables. He most recently helmed the 2012 film Passion starring Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace. He's repped by ICM.
