Karen Gillan joins all-female action thriller ‘Gunpowder Milkshake’

An assassin thriller with a story that spans across multiple generations.

Guardians of the Galaxy star Karen Gillan has joined the cast of the upcoming action thriller Gunpowder Milkshake. 

THR reports that Studiocanal and The Picture Company are the studios behind the project, with Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado directing. The pair are known for the dark Israeli breakout Big Bad Wolves. They will also be writing the script with the help of Ehud Lavski.

At this time plot details are being kept under wraps, but it’s said to feature Gillan as the lead of an all-female cast in an assassin story that spans across multiple generations. Quentin Tarantino’s Kill Bill and Edgar Wright’s Baby Driver are said to be heavy influences on the project, with it being described as “stylish,” “snappy” and “violent.”

Gillain is known for her beginnings with the legendary sci-fi television series Doctor Who and more recently, her role as Nebula in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. She also had great success in Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle, the sequel to the 1995 original, which earned just under a billion dollars worldwide. Fans will see her appearing as Nebula for a fourth time in the upcoming MCU film, Avengers: Endgame and in a third Jumanji film.
