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.

I’ll wait.” Miller’s technobabble doesn’t make any sense to Holden, but it seems to contain a great many hints about the nature of consciousness. The theologically inclined (such as the Reverend Doctor Anna Volovodov) will find it fascinating. Continue reading →
