Karen Gillan To Join Tom Hanks In “Circle”

Former “Doctor Who” and “Guardians of the Galaxy” actress Karen Gillan is set to co-star in James Ponsoldt’s film adaptation of Dave Eggers; novel “The Circle” alongside Tom Hanks, Emma Watson and John Boyega.

Gillan will play Annie, a warm, cute, goofy, old-money confident and fiercely intelligent member of an Internet monopoly that links users’ personal emails, social media, banking and purchasing with their universal operating system.

The result is one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency – something that turns out to not be a good thing. Alicia Vikander was originally attached to star in the film but had to depart due to her commitment to the fifth Jason Bourne movie, with Watson stepping in to replace her.
