  • Karen Gillan to do the lead role in James Ponsoldt movie The Circle

Gillan is set to star opposite Tom Hanks, John Boyega and Emma Watson.

Karen Gillan has been selected to co-star in James Ponsoldt’s film. The film is an adaptation of Dave Egger’s The Circle. The Doctor Who and Guardians of the Galaxy actress will join a loaded cast. 

The cast will include renowned actor Tom Hanks, actress Emma Watson and John Boyega. Gillan will play the role of Annie in the movie, according to Deadline

Annie is a warm, goofy, cute, fiercely intelligent member of The Circle. The Circle is an internet monopoly that links user’s personal emails, banking, social media and purchasing.  These are linked with their universal operating system. This results in one online identity and a new age of civility and transparency.

The movie was also a hit at the Cannes earlier this year. It was when Alicia Vikander was starring opposite Tom Hanks. Emma Watson took over Vikander's role in the movie because Vikander got many offers following her breakout success in Ex Machina. 

Vikander has landed herself in the lead role in the next Jason Bourne movie. Gillan on the other hand is engrossed in projects such as the Adam McKay picture The Big Short and the Guardians of the Galaxy sequel. She will also be starring in HBO’s period drama pilot The Devil You Know.
