The cameras are now rolling on the ambitious, CGI/live-action blended adaptation of Jack London's novel The Call Of The Wild, starring Harrison Ford and Dan Stevens. Karen Gillan will be part of the cast for the new film.

With a script adapted by Blade Runner 2049's Michael Green, the film has Chris Sanders directing the tale of prospector John Thornton (Ford), who treks across the Canadian Yukon during the gold rush.

Gillan will play a woman named Mercedes in the film, now shooting in Los Angeles. She joins a cast that also includes Omar Sy and Colin Woodell. Call Of The Wild will be out on 26 December next year.

Currently working on reshoots for the next Avengers movie, Gillan also has the sequel to Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle on her schedule. She's also written, produced, directed and starred in The Party's Just Beginning, which screened at the Glasgow Film Festival and has a 7 December release set for the US but no UK date planned yet.
