Dougray Scott Enters Tiger House

And the home invasion thriller gets a first-look still

It wouldn't be the worst thing in the world to have that nice Dougray Scott round, you'd think. You could chat about how things went so wrong for him at the end of Mission: Impossible II and where he keeps his Enigma machine. He’d probably bring a cake. Only, well, not so much in his new home invasione film Tiger House.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Scott is jetting out to Cape Town to join a Brit thriller that sees Kaya Scodelario’s injured gymnast face off against a bunch of home invaders. The former Skins actress will attempt to save her boyfriend from the armed gang who have taken him and his family captive.

There's no role announced for the once-nearly-Wolverine, but he'll play someone "badass" according to word from the film's camp.

Ill Manors’ Ed Skrein is also aboard the film, which has a first-look still of Scodelario getting pretty badass in the loft. Debut director Thomas Daley is taking the reins on a thriller that has obvious echoes of You’re Next, Funny Games, Lakeview Terrace and the like. Production house Glass Man Films hope to have some footage in the can in time to sell distribution rights at Cannes. The film should be cinema-ready by the end of the year.
