According to Deadline, Carla Gugino has joined the cast of the action thriller Gunpowder Milkshake, joining a cast of talented actresses led by Guardians of the Galaxy‘s Karen Gillan, Game of Thrones‘ Lena Headey, and Crazy Rich Asians‘ Michelle Yeoh.
Details of the actual plot aren’t known just yet, but Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver are considered the film’s “touchstones,” which will mix stylized action with violence. The script is being described as following Headey and Gillan’s mother-daughter assassin duo and Yeoh will be part of a secret sisterhood of arms dealers who assist the two when things go south.
Gugino would play a member of the mysterious sisterhood, per the report.
In addition to Gillan, Yeoh and Gugino, the cast will also feature Oscar and Emmy-nominee Angela Bassett (Black Panther, American Horror Story) and Golden Globe and Emmy winner Paul Giamatti (Billions).
The film will be directed by Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado, who also helmed the 2014 Israeli hit film Big Bad Wolves. The two also wrote the screenplay along with Ehud Lavski. Andrew Rona and Alex Heineman of The Picture Company will produce as part of their overall deal with Studiocanal.
Gugino recently starred in the acclaimed Netflix horror-drama The Haunting of Hill House, and has starred in such high-profile films as Watchmen, San Andreas and Sin City.
Gunpowder Milkshake is planning on filming in Berlin this summer.
