The biopic of real-life model-turned-bounty hunter Domino Harvey has received another boost to its already impressive r umé. With Tony Scott in the director's chair, Richard Kelly on script duties and Keira Knightley in the lead, things were already looking fairly rosy for the film, but with a further eight cast members already announced, the prospects are beginning to resemble Kew Gardens in the middle of summer. Mr Twinkle Toes himself and this office's most impersonated man, Christopher Walken, will play a reality TV producer, which should suit his flamboyant side rather well while still allowing him to play sinister and basically evil. Mickey Rourke meanwhile will play Ed, a bounty hunter who acts as Domino's boss and mentor, Jacqueline Bisset plays Domino's mother, and Lucy Liu is a psychologist. Mena Suvari has a role, although it's not clear what that role is as yet (we're guessing she plays a friend of Domino's) and the film also stars soul singer Macy Gray and Napoleon Dynamite's Shondrella Avery as twins Lashindra and Lashandra and The Parkers' Mo'Nique as Lateesha, with Delroy Lindo said to be close to signing on for a role. Now for our money, that ain't a bad line-up, with enough character actor savvy to give weight to Knightley's lead, and enough new talent to give the film some energy. And did we mention it's written by Richard Kelly and directed by Tony Scott?
