that Kate Beckinsale is going to star in an action thriller movie called Whiteout
. The film is based on Greg Rucka's comic book series that was also called Whiteout
Kate Beckinsale, who has played action roles in Van Hesling
and the Underworld
films, will play Carrie Stetko, a U.S. Marshal assigned to Antarctica. According to Cinematical
Stetko has just three days to find a murderer before winter arrives and there is no more daylight -- leaving Stetko stuck in Antarctica in the dark with the killer.
Based on Greg Rucka's comic, the story follows Stetko, who is stationed in Anarctica and is brought into a murder investigation. There are only three days until winter hits, when the continent will become dark and she will be trapped with the killer. So, obviously, she has to haul arse to find out the person, before one of the two gets to play Alive. The film will start shooting in Montreal (Huh?) in March, and Wikipedia sources say that they'll also film in Manitoba, which makes much more sense. The flick is headed by Dominic Sena, and sure, he's the man who brought us Gone in Sixty Seconds and Swordfish, but he's also the man behind Rhythm Nation, so maybe the parka-laden people can break into an ultra-serious dance routine at some point in the movie.
