Gabriel Macht will star opposite Kate Beckinsale in action-thriller Whiteout, the first movie from Joel Silver’s Warners-based Dark Castle Entertainment. Tom Skerritt and Columbus Short also will star.
Warner Bros. Pictures will distribute domestically and in most territories overseas, under its deal with Dark Castle.
Director Dominic Sena is shooting the film, based on Greg Rucka’s comic book miniseries, in Canada. Screenwriters Jon and Erich Hoeber adapted for the big screen.
The story revolves around a lone U.S. marshal assigned to Antarctica who has three days to solve a murder mystery before the continent’s dark winter begins. Macht plays a U.N. operative who is also investigating the murder.
