WGN’s upcoming adaptation of Vertigo’s Scalped has brought in its first cast member in the form of Lily Gladstone.
Variety has word that the Certain Women actress’ role in the show is that of Carol Red Crow, the estranged daughter of Chief Lincoln Red Crow. Carol is also an old friend of Dash, the character who’s largely at the centre of Scalped.
The official blurb on the property reads:
Fifteen years ago, Dashiell “Dash” Bad Horse ran away from a life of abject poverty and utter hopelessness on the Prairie Rose Indian Reservation searching for something better. Now he’s come back home armed with nothing but a set of nunchucks, a hell-bent-for-leather attitude and one dark secret, to find nothing much has changed on “The Rez” – short of a glimmering new casino, and a once-proud people overcome by drugs and organized crime. Is he here to set things right or just get a piece of the action?
Based on Jason Aaron and R.M. Guera’s Scalped, this new show is certainly one that has our attention. Big Love and Star Trek Beyond’s Doug Jung has penned the pilot’s script, and Black’s Bilall Fallah and Adil El Arbi will direct.SHARE YOUR COMMENTS BELOW OR ON TWITTER @STARBURST_MAG
