ER’s Goran Visnjic to Star in Elektra

The Hollywood Reporter says that “ER” star Goran Visnjic (pictures) will play the male lead opposite Jennifer Garner in Elektra for director Rob Bowman…

The Regency Enterprises/20th Century Fox film is due to start lensing in early May in Vancouver. The “Daredevil” spinoff finds Garner reprising her role as Elektra Natchios. In this film, she plays a beautiful and deadly assassin who was trained by the Hand, a clan of mystical ninjas. When she turns her back on them, they want her dead. Elektra is assigned to kill Visnjic’s character by the Hand over something his grandfather did; however, she ends up falling for him. Terence Stamp rounds out the cast. Producing are Marvel’s Avi Arad and Horseshoe Bay partners Mark Steven Johnson and Gary Foster. Visnjic heads to Vancouver after wrapping up duties on “ER.”

Visnjic also starred in last week’s USA Network movie “Spartacus” and in the current theatrical release “Close Your Eyes”.
