Christina is set to star in the indie drama The Burning Woman. The film will be under Scott Free Productions.
Brad Ingelsby wrote the script about a woman who raises her young grandson after her daughter goes missing.
A strong cast is coming together for indie drama The Burning Woman: Sienna Miller, Jacki Weaver, Aaron Paul and Christina Hendricks will star in the Scott Free film.
Brad Ingelsby (Run All Night) wrote the script for the thriller that centers on a woman whose life is forever changed when her teenage daughter mysteriously disappears and she is left to raise her young grandson.
Jake Scott (Welcome to the Rileys) is attached to direct the film, which is being produced by Ridley Scott, Kevin Walsh and Mike Pruss for Scott Free. Erika Olde is executive producing. UTA is handling domestic rights.
“An excellent script by Brad Inglesby has drawn a truly excellent cast. For me, a dream come true,” Scott said in a statement.
Mad Men star Hendricks was most recently seen in the films The Neon Demon and Bad Santa 2. The actress will soon be seen in the comedy Fist Fight. She is repped by ICM Partners, Independent Talent Group in the U.K., LINK Entertainment and Hirsch Wallerstein.
I’ve added some production stills of Christina as Diane in Bad Santa 2. The film is set to be released on November 23rd.
BAD SANTA 2 returns Academy Award®-winner BILLY BOB THORNTON to the screen as America’s favorite anti-hero, Willie Soke. Fueled by cheap whiskey, greed and hatred, Willie teams up once again with his angry little sidekick, Marcus (TONY COX), to knock off a Chicago charity on Christmas Eve. Along for the ride is ‘the kid’ – chubby and cheery Thurman Merman (BRETT KELLY), a 250-pound ray of sunshine who brings out Willie’s sliver of humanity.
Mommy issues arise when the pair are joined by Academy Award®, Golden Globe and Emmy-winner KATHY BATES, as Willie’s horror story of a mother, Sunny Soke. A super butch super bitch, Sunny raises the bar for the gang’s ambitions, while somehow lowering the standards of criminal behavior. Willie is further burdened by lusting after the curvaceous and prim Diane, played by Emmy Award-nominee CHRISTINA HENDRICKS, the charity director with a heart of gold and libido of steel.
You better watch out: BAD SANTA 2 is coming to town.
