Marvel badass Karen Gillan is set to star in the satirical sci-fi thriller Dual, which will see the Scottish actress set out to kill her own clone.
Riley Stearns (Faults) will direct from his own original screenplay, and the film will co-star Aaron Paul, Beulah Koale, Martha Kelly and Jesse Eisenberg, the latter of whom starred in Stearns’ most recent feature, The Art of Self-Defense.
Gillan will play a woman who receives a terminal diagnosis and opts for a cloning procedure to ease her loss on her friends and family. When she makes a miraculous recovery, her attempts to have her clone decommissioned fail and lead to a court-mandated duel to the death. So the title has — wait for it — dual meanings! Get it?

Apparently there was a watch-along of the first GOTG yesterday and James Gunn and the cast shared some stuff! I missed it all being in the wrong timezone and all, but here’s the highlights! I had a blast reading them, I hope they do Vol 2 next.
(Awww. :( )
I really don’t like that Quill ran out on his grandparents, never have, but it does make for good fanfiction fodder I guess. I doubt they were close.
As well as all the other stuff, The Eleventh Hour rewatch/tweetalong was today! I thought I’d do the same thing I did with Vincent and the Doctor and gather up all the most interesting tweets from the cast and crew.
God I forgot how punch-you-in-the-heart this episode was. Even the little fake ident the BBC guy whipped up made me sad.
Lots of people involved in the making of this episode livetweeted it – Matt Smith, Karen Gillan, Tony Curran, Bill Nighy and Richard Curtis (from Emma Freud’s account). They shared lots of great, funny stuff! And then some serious stuff. Honestly the whole thing reads like a joint interview when you put it together, so I DID put (a lot of it) together-
A major Doctor Who star just shaved their head for a role in a James Gunn comic-book ensemble film!
…No, not you Karen! You were FANTASTIC though.
Peter Capaldi is going to be in Suicide Squad! I’m so excited to see who he’ll be playing. I feel like it’d be just Gunn’s style to have him play one of the (apparently many) DC villains whose title is “Doctor”.
