By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: AMC’s new murder-mystery drama “The Killing” continues to draw in crowds, elevating the profiles of the show’s two leads.
And now it appears that the actors are parlaying that exposure into feature-film work.
Mireille Enos, who plays Seattle sheriff Sarah Linden, is in talks to join Marc Forster’s “World War Z” in the role of Brad Pitt’s wife, THR is reporting. Pitt “is playing a U.N. worker, [and] Enos would play his wife, a mother of two girls,” THR reports. The zombie drama is supposed to begin filming in June.
Meanwhile, THR also adds that Linden’s “Killing” co-star, Joel Kinnaman, has joined Denzel Washington and Ryan Reynolds in “Safe House,” a thriller about a CIA agent (Reynolds) trying to transport a violent convict (Washington) following a vicious attack.
Kinnaman “is playing a man who operates a safe house where Reynolds and Washington show up,” THR says.
