The movie is an ‘action thriller about a band of misfit cops who hunt down and kill nocturnal underground monsters’. Vikander is taking the lead role, with Hammer as her love interest.
Wheatley is set to direct from a script he co-wrote Freakshift with his wife, Amy Jump. The movie is due to start shooting this August, once Vikander has finished shooting the remake of Tomb Raider.
As well a Free Fire (where as you can see above, he’s super-beardy), Hammer will be seen later this year in the gay-themed Call Me By Your Name, which received huge amounts of praise on its Sundance debut. Many expect it to be a major arthouse success.
