Karen Gillan goes full action hero in new thriller Gunpowder Milkshake

January 10th, 2019 by Marc Comments

It looks like Doctor Who, Jumaji and Marvel star Karen Gillan is set to go full-out action hero.

We’re so ok with that!

Gunpowder Milkshake is a new action thriller directed by Big Bad Wolves directors Aharon Keshales and Navot Papushado who also wrote the script with Ehud Lavski.


Plot details are being kept muzzled, but the pic is described as being in the assassin genre with a story that spans multiple generations. The entire cast is envisioned as being all-female, with Gillan the cornerstone.

While this is all we know so far, word is Kill Bill is an influence for the movie.

Sounds good to us… and we LOVE that title. We also love Gillan. But that’s a given at this stage, surely?

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
