"True Blood" star Anna Paquin has learned a thing or two about the dark side during her days in Bon Temps, and it will certainly come in handy in her latest role.
Indie Wire reports that the actress joins "Thor" star Tom Hiddleston and Elijah Wood in the upcoming big-screen adaptation of Elliot Chaze's 1953 noir novel "Black Wings Has My Angel."
The project started being shopped around Hollywood in 2007 with Wood as a producer, but the "Lord of the Rings" star quickly learned that getting into Mordor movies made isn't always easy, although a little persistence pays off.
Three years later, he took a role in the production, only to see it shelved until now.
The movie tells the story of ex-con Tim Sunblade, played by Hiddleston, who joins forces with a call girl (Paquin) to pull off the robbery of an armored car.
Despite being postponed for quite a bit, production is now getting under way, with Alfonso Pineda Ulloa at the helm for his first English-language directing gig. The script was penned by Ulloa in conjunction with Christopher Peditto and "Wild at Heart" screenwriter Barry Gifford.
Filming starts this September.
