Cara Gee as Coyote in the Tyson Caron drama WYNTER
Cara Gee (Camina Drummer) will have an as yet unspecified role in CALL OF THE WILD, a film based on Jack London’s story about Buck, a powerful dog (half St. Bernard) who is stolen from a California estate and sold as a sled dog in the Arctic. Harrison Ford will be John Thornton, the guy who saves Buck from death at the hands of a cruel owner (Dan Stevens), and Karen Gillan will be the spoiled and pampered Mercedes, sister of the aforementioned cruel owner. Director Chris Saunders says that the film will “incorporate major CG elements”. CALL OF THE WILD has begun filming in Santa Clarita, California. It will be released in the US on Christmas Day, 2019, and in Russia as Зов предков (Call of the Ancestors) on 2 January 2020.
Anna Hardwick (Maddy in “Faes Wide Shut“) will be Elizabeth in A PUZZLE TO DIE FOR, which stars Lacey Chabert as a crossword puzzle editor who finds her life completely disrupted when several of the clues in her recent puzzles are linked to unsolved crimes, and she is pulled into the police investigation. She is forced to work with a tough (but charming) police detective (Brennan Elliott), to crack the case and prove her innocence. A PUZZLE TO DIE FOR is the first of a new series of mysteries co-created by Gregg Rossen, Brian Sawyer, and New York Times puzzle editor Will Shortz called THE CROSSWORD MYSTERIES, and will premiere on Hallmark Movies and Mysteries in June, 2019.
Hardwick also has an as yet unspecified role in PRIDE, PREJUDICE, AND MISTLETOE, based on the novel by Melissa de la Cruz (a humourous, gender-swapped retelling of Jane Austen’s story). The film will star Lacey Chabert as Darcy, a successful businesswoman who returns to her hometown for the holidays. She reconnects with an old rival, restaurant owner Luke (Brendan Penny), at her parents’ Christmas party and the two of them are somehow forced to plan a charity event together. (In the book, Luke is an unassuming carpenter.) PRIDE, PREJUDICE, AND MISTLETOE will air on The Hallmark Channel on Friday 23 November at 8/7c. Continue reading →
