The idea of cloning is something that has been fantasized by everybody at some point in their life, but this time around it’s actually happening. Karen Gillan gave fans waiting in anticipation for the upcoming sci-fi thriller movie, Dual, a first look, and in it she fights her own clone.
Curious to know how? Read on to find out.
The title of the film itself gives away the plot. The film, which is written, produced, and directed by Riley Stearns tells the story of a woman named Sara who “opts for a cloning procedure to ease her loss on her friends and family” after receiving a terminal diagnosis. “When she makes a miraculous recovery, her attempts to have her clone decommissioned fail and lead to a court-mandated duel to the death.”
In the sneak peek photo shared by Karen Gillan from the movie Dual, we see Sara holding a long-bladed saber in her left hand and a round shield in her right. Facing her is a dummy version of her clone, dressed in black, with a mirror as its head, reflecting Sara’s troubled face back at her.
Writing about the newly-released photo, director Riley Stearns noted: “I can’t wait for y’all to see the film.”
Announced back in 2020, “Dual” wrapped production late last year, and though it was originally expected to premiere in 2021, a release date hasn’t been disclosed yet.
Along with Karen Gillan, Dual will feature Aaron Paul, Beulah Koale, Martha Kelly, and Jesse Eisenberg.
Meanwhile Gillan celebrated her 34th birthday on Sunday by sharing a throwback clip from her “real directorial debut” in a homemade horror movie she helmed at 13 years old.
“To celebrate my birthday I thought I’d share this little teaser for a horror film I made when I was 13 years old. My real directorial debut,” she wrote in the caption. “I made my dad act in the film and made @donnatello876 my trusty camera operator,” Gillan wrote. “I will post the full video if I can get my Dad to agree to let me share. For some BAFFLING reason he seems reluctant for people to see it…”
“Featuring some of the worst acting you’ll ever see but some of the BEST wallpaper you’ll ever clap eyes on. Swipe for the gruesome ending. Thinking about submitting this to @sundanceorg. You think it’ll get in? Enjoy. Try not to get too scared. #daddydaddydaddy.”
