Last month we brought you news concerning director Ben Wheatley’s next film, starring Alicia Vikander. Titled Freakshift, the film centers on “women with shotguns fighting giant crabs”, and it looks like they might have some company. Per Deadline:
Armie Hammer will star with Alicia Vikander in the Ben Wheatley-directed Freakshift, the action thriller about a band of misfit cops who hunt down and kill nocturnal underground monsters. She’s the lead female protagonist and Hammer plays her love interest, with production gearing up for August. This marks a quick re-team with Wheatley. Hammer co-stars in his new film, Free Fire, the Brie Larson-starrer that bows in the U.S. on April 21 through A24. Sam Riley, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy and Jack Reynor also star.
This isn’t the first time Hammer has worked with Wheatley and Vikander. Hammer not only appeared in Wheatley’s Free Fire, but also appeared alongside Vikander in 2015’s highly underrated The Man from Uncle. Here’s hoping the two can create some more movie magic again.
