X-Men’s Famke Janssen has been added to the cast of Danis Tanovic’s ‘The Postcard Killings’ alongside Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
The film is a chilling crime story, following Jacob Kanon (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), a hardened New York Detective, in search of the person responsible for the murder of his only daughter. Across Europe, newlywed couples are being targeted in a string of bizarre homicides that leave the young victims’ bodies looking like they have been staged.
Janssen takes on the role of Valerie Kanon, the mother of their now deceased daughter.
Joining Janssen and Morgan on the cast are Denis O’Hare (American Horror Story, Allure), Naomi Battrick (Jamestown, A Very English Scandal), Ruairi O’Connor (The Spanish Princess, Delicious) and Cush Jumbo (The Good Fight, The Good Wife).
The film’s cross-country focus is also highlighted by an extended cast that includes Sallie Harmsen (Blade Runner 2049, Devils), Eva Röse (The Paradise Suite, Real Humans) and Joachim Król (Run Lola Run, The Piano Player).
