Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is having a busy week, as she’s in the running for the female lead in Captain America 2 and has also just signed on to star in Don Hemingway. Deadline reports that Clarke & Savages star Demian Bechir have signed up to appear alongside Jude Law and Richard E. Grant in the movie.
Dom Hemingway will follow the titular character (Law), a larger than life safecracker with a loose fuse who is also funny, profane and dangerous. Freshly released from prison, he’s looking to collect on what he thinks he’s owed thanks to him keeping quiet about what he knew on his last job. Bichir will play a crime boss who’s based in the south of France, who Law’s character goes to visit. It isn’t clear who Clarke will play, although every movie needs a love interest (well, they don’t, but people insist on having one anyway), so we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s her role.
Richard Shepard (The Hunting Party, The Matador) will direct, who’s previously worked with Emilia on Game Of Thrones.
