The huge success of the hit HBO fantasy drama series Game of Thrones has seen a number of the actors and actresses involved in the project going on to become household names around the world. Actor Nikolaj Coster-Waldau has been in the acting industry for a number of years now and is finally getting the recognition that his talent deserves, thanks to his involvement in Game of Thrones.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays the role of Jaime Lannister in Game of Thrones and, while the series is on its hiatus between seasons, the talented actor uses the break to work on his movie projects. This year, we have seen Nikolaj working on the new movie Shot Caller, which began filming back in May and has the potential to be a very interesting and exciting movie indeed.
Shot Caller is a drama, crime, thriller, which focuses on a gangster who has just been released from prison and gets back in with his gang on the outside. The leaders of his gang force him to pull off a major crime with one of the brutal rival gangs on the streets of Southern California. We are looking forward to seeing how this compares to the gangster movies that have come before it.
As well as starring Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, the rest of the cast of Shot Caller includes the likes of Lake Bell, Jon Bernthal, and Omari Hardwick, to name just a few of them. Shot Caller is directed by Ric Roman Waugh, who also wrote the script for the movie, which is still awaiting an official release date. We will keep you posted on that.
