Quarry Collects Actress Nikki Amuka-Bird
I know British actress Nikki Amuka-Bird best as the long suffering Det. Sgt. Erin Gray on BBC One’s addictive series Luther. Fans will get to see another side of her now that she’s been cast in the new Cinemax drama pilot Quarry.
Logan Marshall-Green stars in the pilot as a 1973 era Vietnam vet, freshly home for the war and quite disillusioned. So, what does he do? He joins a shadow organization to become a hitman.
Amuka-Bird will play Ruth, explained the latest Deadline casting update. Ruth is the wife of Artie, friend to Marshall-Green’s Quarry. Artie is a former Marine, by the by.
It’s all coming together. Quarry is based on the series of novels by Max Allan Collins, who also brought us the amazing Road To Perdition graphic novel. As previously reported, Stellan Skarsgård will play the key role of The Broker. Noah Taylor has been cast as the hitman who teaches Quarry how things are done.
Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller have written the pilot and will executive produce the Cinemax pilot with Steve Golin, David Kanter, Matt DeRoss, Keith Redmon, Collins, Ken Levin and John Hillcoat. Hillcoat will also direct.
Nikki Amuka-Bird has also been cast in Jupiter Ascending, the upcoming science fiction film written, produced and directed by The Wachowskis. Now this is interesting because though The Wachowskis saw glory with The Matrix, their projects seem to get stranger and stranger ever since. This one revolves around an intergalactic hitman and a space queen…so of course, its a love story. Ha. You cannot deny the cool cast though, which so far has Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum as our star-crossed lovers, Game of Thrones‘ Sean Bean, Eddie Redmayne, Douglas Booth, James D’Arcy, Terry Gilliam and Amuka-Bird. Could be very cool, though. I’d keep my eye on that one.
Amuka-Bird has also been spotted on Torchwood.
