Christina Hendricks set to Drive

September 9th, 2010

Christina Hendricks has joined the cast of new thriller 'Drive'.

The 'Mad Men' star has been lined up for a role in Nicolas Winding Refn's new movie, which already boasts high-profile names - such as Ryan Gosling and British actress Carey Mulligan - on its cast list, Variety reports.

While it is not yet known what part the curvaceous redhead will be playing, the film - which is based on James Sallis' crime novel - follows a talented Hollywood stunt driver (Gosling) working as a getaway driver for gangs robbing banks in Los Angeles.

However, when he agrees to help the boyfriend of his neighbour (Mulligan) pull off his latest crime, things take a turn for the worse, and the pair find themselves on the run.

Hossein Amini has scripted the project, which will begin filming in Los Angeles in two weeks time.

Bryan Cranston, Albert Brooks and Oscar Isaac are also set to feature in the thriller.
