Rosamund Pike to star opposite Jon Hamm in Brad Anderson's High Wire Act
Director Brad Anderson (THE MACHINIST, SESSION 9) has not been in the spotlight lately, but that may change with his latest project. Written by Tony Gilroy (THE BOURNE LEGACY), Anderson's next venture will be an action/thriller by the name of HIGH WIRE ACT. As exciting a combination as those two are, the film already has two stars guaranteed to make heads turn: Rosamund Pike and Jon Hamm.
The official synopsis:
Set in 1980's Beirut, Hamm plays Mason Skiles, a former U.S. diplomat who is called back into service to save a former colleague from the group possibly responsible for his own family's death. Pike plays a CIA field agent working undercover at the American embassy who’s tasked with keeping Mason alive and ensuring the mission is a success.
Rosamund Pike has been a hot item ever since her spectacular turn in David Fincher's GONE GIRL and rightfully so. She's always delivered solid work so it's great to see her in more starring roles. Acting opposite of her will be the man who seemingly walked out of the 1950s, Jon Hamm. Everyone knows this guy from his turn on Mad Men, and I have a feeling that after his cinematic turn in next year's KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES, he's only going to be in higher demand. Sounds great to me!
We can probably expect HIGH WIRE ACT to go into production in 2016.
I don't care how crazy GONE GIRL made her look, Rosamund Pike is still gorgeous.
