‘Game of Thrones’ & ‘Peaky Blinders’ stars unite for a Netflix movie
House Lannister is reuniting!
Game of Thrones may not have ended on a positive note. But, we still loved the actors and the job that they did. Well now, we’ll be seeing them in action on television once again. And they’ll be joined by a Peaky Blinders star as well!
Netflix recently announced that they’ll be dropping 70 movies in 2021. One of the films that they announced was a historical survival thriller, Against The Ice. It is based on the Danish novel Two Against The Ice, what makes the movie really interesting is that Game of Thrones Star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau will be playing a lead role in the film. Not only that, but he’ll also be a part of the movie’s production, along with co-writer Joe Derrick. And to make matters more interesting, a Peaky Blinders star will also be joining Coster-Waldau in Against The Ice.
Game of Thrones stars teaming up with Peaky Blinders actor!
English actor Joe Cole, who plays the role of John Shelby in Peaky Blinders, will be starring alongside Nikolaj Coster-Waldau in Against The Ice. Furthermore, Game of Thrones star and fellow English actor Charles Dance will also be joining them in the movie. As we all know, Dance played the iconic role of Tywin Lannister in the HBO Original series.
Against The Ice is set in 1909 and follows the lead character Captain Ejnar Mikkelsen (Coster-Waldau) on a historic mission. His mission is to disprove a theory that Greenland is divided into two different pieces of land. Mikkelsen is accompanied by an inexperienced crew member Iver Iversen (Cole) as the two leave the ship behind and sled across the ice to complete the mission by themselves. But, their return to the ship takes a lot longer than they expected. And on their return, they learn that the remaining crew had abandoned the camp. And so, their adventure and fight for survival will continue.
While talking to Deadline, Coster-Waldau said:
Against The Ice has been a passion project for me from the very beginning. It combines a lot of themes that excite me: adventure, Greenland, companionship, loyalty and love. It is an intense exploration of two men, two opposites, trapped in an epic dangerous setting.
Furthermore, apart from the Peaky Blinders and Game of Thrones stars, Peter Flinth will be directing the film. And Everest director Baltasar Kormákur will be a part of the production team too. Much to everyone’s pleasure, Against The Ice has already wrapped filming, so expect it to land on Netflix without any delays!
