Nikolaj Coster-Waldau set for Shot Caller

Usually found wandering the castle hallways and landscapes of Westeros for Game Of Thrones, news arrived via The Wrap recently that Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is making one of his regular movie stops, making a deal to star in the new crime thriller Shot Caller.

And yes, while we often use that term to describe the director, this time it's simply the title of the film, which finds Coster-Waldau as a gangster freshly released from jail who is 'encouraged' (read: ordered) to pull off a major, violent crime with a rival gang on the streets of Southern California.

There is, however a director attached, with Ric Roman Waugh (Snitch), who is busy rounding up the rest of the cast with an eye to start shooting in New Mexico at the end of next month. Bold Films is behind this one, with Relativity Studios agreeing to take on distribution for the finished product.

Coster-Waldau is currently at work alongside Tina Fey (Date Night) on war comedy Fun House and will also be seen in Alex Proyas' (Dark City) Gods Of Egypt, which is going through a lengthy post-production process and will be out on 12 February next year.
