Carla Gugino has joined the cast of Millennium Films and Emmett/Furla Films’ Righteous Kill, the Jon Avnet crime drama that reteams Robert De Niro and Al Pacino as New York cops chasing a serial killer.
Gugino has been cast as the female lead, a crime-scene investigator with a dark personal life who enters into a relationship with De Niro’s character.
Producing “Kill” are Avi Lerner, Randall Emmett, Avnet, Boaz Davidson, George Furla and Alexandra Milchan. Danny Dimbort and Trevor Short will serve as executive producers.
Russell Gewirtz wrote the screenplay for the $60 million movie, which goes before cameras at month’s end.
Gugino was also recently cast as Sally Jupiter/Silk Spectre in Zack Snyder’s Watchmen.
