James Cosmo is a Scottish actor who has been part of Hollywood films like Highlander, Braveheart, Trainspotting, Troy, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, Ben-Hur and Wonder Woman. However, he is most known for his roles in television series, Game of Thrones and Sons Of Anarchy. In GoT, he played the 997th Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch, Jeor Mormont.
Cosmo’s role in Karthik Subbaraj’s film is yet to be revealed. Touted to be a gangster drama, the movie will be shot entirely in London. It went on floors last month.
Y Not Studios, the banner which is producing the film, had earlier announced that Malayalam actor Aishwarya Lekshmi is set to share screen space with Dhanush. The makers are yet to announce the rest of the cast. Santhosh Narayan has been roped in to compose music for the film.
I am super exited about my next project, which will be directed by @karthiksubbaraj and produced by @sash041075 of #ynotstudios with a brilliant cast and crew. Can’t wait for this to start next month in London.
