Malin Akerman has joined Ethan Hawke in Kasper Barfoed’s spy-thriller The Numbers Station. According to Variety, the story centers on “a disgraced black ops agent (Hawke) tasked with a dead-end job of protecting a young woman in the middle of the Nevada desert. When the two come under attack, they have to fight to stay alive.” So it really is a dead-end job! Hey-o!
Akerman will next be seen in The Romantics, which opens this week, and in the drama The Bang Bang Club, which screens at the Toronto International Film Festival. She’s also co-starring in the indie crime flicks Criminal Empire for Dummys with Gary Oldman and Milo Ventimiglia and Catch .44 with Forest Whitaker and Bruce Willis.
