The Capture: Ron Perlman, Famke Janssen, Laura Haddock join BBC series
Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Sons of Anarchy), Famke Janssen (X-Men, How to Get Away with Murder), and Laura Haddock (Guardians of the Galaxy, Da Vinci’s Demons) have joined the cast of BBC’s upcoming conspiracy thriller The Capture, Variety has confirmed.
From David Heyman, Heyday, and NBCU International Studios, The Capture is a thriller involving surveillance, misinformation, and fake news. Set in London, one of the most closely monitored cities in the world, it asks whether what we see in surveillance footage can always be believed.
Also starring in the project are Callum Turner (War & Peace), Holliday Grainger (Strike), Ben Miles (The Crown), Lia Williams (Kiri), Sophia Brown (Marcella), Paul Ritter (Quantum of Solace), Adelayo Adedayo (Origin), and Ralph Ineson (Game of Thrones).
In The Capture, Turner plays a veteran whose conviction for a murder in Afghanistan is overturned because of flawed video evidence. But when damning CCTV footage emerges from an incident in London, he finds himself fighting for his freedom once again. Grainger plays the detective assigned to investigate whether there is more to the case than meets the eye.
“I am incredibly excited to see The Capture brought to life by such a wonderful cast and crew. It’s an honor to come to work every day with these hugely talented people,” said writer and director Ben Chanan.
Chanan (Cyberbully) wrote the six-part drama series and is also directing. The project is currently shooting in London. Chanan also serves as executive producer along with Heyman (Harry Potter franchise), Rosie Alison and Tom Winchester for Heyday, Tom Coan for NBCUniversal International Studios, and Ben Irving for BBC One. NBCUniversal International Distribution will be selling the show internationally.
