Whitaker, Pearce & Beckinsale Fly

This week’s Best Actor Golden Globe winner Forest Whitaker (“The Last King of Scotland”, TV’s “The Shield”) is set to take flight in “Winged Creatures”.

Set in Los Angeles, the ensemble drama deals with a group of survivors after a diner shootout. The script is said to be a deeply moving examination of both the emotional fallout and a critique of American society.

Guy Pearce and Kate Beckinsale have already signed to star and “Little Fish” helmer Rowan Woods will direct says The Herald Sun.
