Following break out turns in AMC’s “The Terror” and HBO’s “Chernobyl,” Adam Nagaitis has scored a major role in the film “Gunpowder Milkshake” for StudioCanal and the Picture Company.
The action-thriller follows a family of female assassins that come together after a hit goes wrong. Karen Gillan, Paul Giamatti, Lena Headey and Michelle Yeoh star.
Navot Papushado and Ehud Lavski wrote the film with Papushado directing . Andrew Rona and Alex Heinemann are producing with filming now underway in Germany.
Nagaitis served as the duplicitous lead villain Mr. Hickey in the first season of “The Terror” which garnered him rave reviews. He recently played heroic firefighter Vasily Ignatenko in “Chernobyl”. He will also soon be seen in the three-part BBC & FX adaptation of “A Christmas Carol” with that version hailing from “Peaky Blinders” creator Steven Knight.
