Gabriel Macht (“The Good Shepherd,” “Because I Said So”) will star opposite Kate Beckinsale in action-thriller “Whiteout,” the first pic from Joel Silver’s Warners-based Dark Castle Entertainment banner reports Variety.
Based on Greg Rucka’s comicbook miniseries, the story revolves around a lone U.S. marshal assigned to Antarctica who has three days to solve a murder mystery before the continent’s dark winter begins. Macht plays a U.N. operative who is also investigating the murder.
Tom Skerritt and Columbus Short also will star. Helmer Dominic Sena is shooting the pic in Canada. Scribes Jon and Erich Hoeber adapted for the bigscreen.
