Kate Beckinsale isn’t afraid to get cold for the sake of acting: she’s got the lead role in Whiteout, an upcoming thriller movie directed by Dominic Sena set in Antartica. Here a new picture of Witheout released by Warner Bros:
“A U.S. marshal (Kate Beckinsale), the only one assigned to Antarctica, must investigate a murder on the frozen continent within three days before the arctic winter begins. She crosses paths with a U.N. operative (Gabriel Macht), also investigating the murder.”
Whiteout is the movie adaptation of the 1999 comic book by writer Greg Rucka and artist Steve Lieber.
