The upcoming Fox movie based on Jack London's 1903 novel Call of the Wild has cast Cara Gee, the Hollywood Reporter. The actress, best known for SYFY's The Expanse, will be joining the previously announced Harrison Ford (Blade Runner 2049, Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Dan Stevens (Apostle, Legion) and Karen Gillan (Guardians of the Galaxy, Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle). There are no details on her role at the moment.
The big-budget live-action movie is directed by Oscar nominee Chris Sanders (The Croods, How to Train Your Dragon) from a screenplay by Oscar nominee Michael Green (Logan, American Gods).
Erwin Stoff (The Matrix, 13 Hours) will produce alongside co-producer Ryan Stafford (War for the Planet of the Apes). Diana Pokorny (Downsizing, Daddy's Home) will serve as executive producer with Steve Asbell overseeing the feature for Fox. The outlet notes that the project will rely heavily on the Technoprops studio special effects purchased last year by Fox.
Production on the Call of the Wild will start this September. Previous adaptations of the film include the Clark Gable Led 1935 version and the 1972 movie starring Charlton Heston, with a number of other films and TV specials inspired by the classic story. Bulearca.ro
