Game of Thrones’ Gemma Whelan to play the lead role in 'The Tower'

Detective stories are one of the most popular genres of movies and literature that are full of thrill and suspense. The fun increases exponentially when the story is told by one of our favourite figures. Game of Thrones’ Gemma Whelan (Yara Greyjoy) will be playing the lead role in ITV’sThe Tower’ from ‘Homeland’ writer Patrick Harbinson. The three-part adaptation is based on Kate London’s Metropolitan Police novel Post Mortem.

Whelan will play Detective Sergeant Sarah Collins, who investigates after a veteran beat cop and teenage girl fall to their deaths from a tower block in southeast London. They leave a five-year-old boy and rookie police officer Lizzie Griffiths on the roof, only for them to go missing.

Collins works to find Lizzie before she comes to serious harm. But she also uncovers the truth behind the grisly tower block deaths. Collins and Griffiths later become the central characters in three books written by former Met officer London.

Filming of the series commences this month. The Tower is the product of Harbinson’s new production outfit Windhover Films and Mammoth Screen. The ITV Studios-owned producer was also behind the BBC/Netflix series The Serpent and Poldark. It is made in association with ITV Studios, which distributes internationally. ITV’s head of drama Polly Hill commissioned the series.

We can find them regularly appearing on other popular shows and films, providing the fans with a nostalgic and warm feeling from their time on Game of Thrones. Richard Madden and Kit Harington have been cast in important roles in Marvel Cinematic Universe’s upcoming movie Eternels. Their co-star Emilia Clarke will soon be joining them in a yet non-disclosed role in Marvel’s Secret Invasion. Jacob Anderson has also been stirring up the internet recently with his new roles. A few weeks ago, Anderson made headlines when he joined the cast of Doctor Who in a recurring role. This time, he is in the news for being selected as the lead for AMC’s adaptation of Anne Rice’s Gothic vampire novel Interview With the Vampire.

The show is expected to air on AMC in 2022. Anderson will play Louis, a young man who is seduced into the world of the undead by the amoral vampire Lestat, played by Sam Reid.

Game of Thrones' Jason Momoa responds to Dave Bautista's buddy-cop movie proposal

It is always fun to watch our favorite stars team up on the screen. Long-time wrestling fans remember Dave Bautista as the 6’4″ hulking who dominated the ring with his awesome physique. He has impressed his fans with his on-screen presence as the Guardians of The Galaxy’s Drax the Destroyer. The wrestler turned actor is looking forward to expanding the variety in his roles, and he wants to do it with none other than his actor friend Jason Momoa.

Bautista met the Game of Thrones alum on the sets of the upcoming sci-fi film Dune, and they quickly became close buddies. He recently posted an idea on his official Twitter account, asking Momoa if he would like to team up for a buddy-cop movie directed by David Leitch.

Momoa quickly responded to his buddy call, making it public on The Late Late Show with James Corden. he said, “I’m not on Twitter, but he literally texted me about four days ago, going, ‘We need to do a buddy cop film.’ We love each other, you know, obviously we met on See, we’re on Dune together, so I said, ‘Absolutely.’ And he’s like, ‘Let’s do it in Hawaii.’ I’m like, ‘Let’s do it.’ I’m like, ‘I got an idea.’ So it’s off to the races now. We’re doing it.”

Hopefully, things will work out for the duo and we might get one of the best action-cop flicks we have ever seen. What do you think about the anticipated team-up? Tell us in the comments below!

Doctor Who adds Game of Thrones Jacob Anderson (Grey Worm) in recurring role

Game of Thrones had an ensemble of the most amazing cast. You can find them frequently in other famous franchises, some even joining big production houses such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Marvel’s Eternals is about to drop, starting Game of Thrones’ Kit Harington and Richard Madden. Their co-star Emilia Clarke is soon to follow them. Other than that, another Game of Thrones alum is set to join a famous fictional universe. Jacob Anderson, popular for playing Grey Worm on the show, will be joining the ever sprawling cast of Doctor Who.

Doctor Who is a pop culture icon, entertaining a huge following of fans over decades. Jacob has been cast as the mysterious Vinder, a recurring character who will pop up throughout the series. Vinder will join forces with the Doctor (Jodie Whittaker), Yaz (Mandip Gill) and Dan (John Bishop) as the Time Lord faces her biggest ever adventure battling the forces of evil across time and space.

Details about Vinder are being kept under wraps but according to Jacob, he is ‘adventurous and dynamic. “The Doctor has been a part of my life forever, from watching and rewatching the serials on VHS as a kid and being terrified, to unexpectedly finding my eyes watering when the Tenth Doctor said “I don’t want to go”, I always wanted to live in the Whoniverse,” Jacob shared.

Not only has a lifelong dream of mine now been fulfilled, but to be playing a character as fun, adventurous and dynamic as Vinder is the cherry on top. This is very cool.”
