As the star of many runway shows, Brit model Agyness Deyn will add actress to her growing roster of roles. The punk-rock chick will be making her acting debut in the Pusher, a remake of a 1996 flick. The film follows the trials and tribulations of a drug dealer who finds confrontation with a string of characters including Deyn, who plays an erotic dancer. Originally set in Copenhagen, director Luis Prieto switched locals for East London’s Shoreditch, an area very familiar to Deyn who grew up nearby. Shooting begins this month and if all goes well, Deyn may star in the 3 part series.
This summer we can expect to see a few more model-to-movie star crossovers including: Gemma Ward in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Rosie Huntington-Whitley in Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Lily Cole in Doctor Who.
