Jaimie Alexander Approaches Intersection

Co-starring with The Grey's Frank Grillo

She'll be reprising her role as the Lady Sif in Thor 2 before too long, but before that, Jaimie Alexander has opted for some less fantastical thrills in Intersection. She'll star alongside Frank Grillo (The Grey) in the murderous tale, which is being directed by David Marconi.

Alexander and Grillo play a married couple, but Alexander is cheating on her husband and plotting his death with the help of her lover. The plan goes askew when the husband and his rival are stranded together after a car crash on a remote Moroccan desert road.

This being a Europacorp production, Luc Besson is producing along with Gareth Upton (Colombiana), and had a hand in the screenplay. Marconi is credited as a writer on the film too, and this seems to be the first time he's directed since the crime thriller The Harvest in 1992. He also wrote Enemy Of The State and contributed to Die Hard 4.

Alexander apparently beat off competition from Jemma Arterton for Intersection, and has most recently been kicking ass in Kim Jee-woon's Last Stand, alongside Arnold Schwarzenegger (who appears elsewhere in News this morning).

Shooting starts later this month.
