Christina Hendricks In Talks To Star In Sally Potter’s “Bomb.”
The “Mad Men”star is in talks to star opposite Elle Fanning in this tale of Cold War-era London.
/Film has the story:
“The Daily Mail broke the news of Hendricks’ casting earlier this week. Potter’s film centers around two teenage rebels involved with the anti-nuclear movement in 1960s London, against the backdrop of the Cold War and the sexual revolution. Fanning will star as Ginger, the brainier one of the two girls, while Englert (daughter of director Jane Campion) is signed on to play boy-crazy Rosa. Nivola will play a writer who has an affair with his teenage daughter’s best friend. Bening and Hendricks’ roles have not been revealed at this time.
Hendricks tends to get as much attention for her looks as she does her actual talent. But Mad Men fans know she’s got actual chops — she more than holds her own against Jon Hamm, John Slattery, Elisabeth Moss, and the rest of the excellent cast — and her memorable performances on projects like Firefly and Drive show she’s got quite a bit of range as well. Here’s hoping Bomb will provide her with an opportunity to demonstrate some of that skill.”
