‘Best Served Cold’: Rebecca Ferguson To Star In Fantasy Revenge Film From ‘Deadpool’ Director

Is there anyone who doesn’t love Rebecca Ferguson? The Mission: Impossible scene-stealer has been a genre favorite, starring in Dune, Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, and the hit sci-fi series Silo among many others. And now she’s set to join Deadpool director Tim Miller for fantasy revenge flick Best Served Cold, based on the book series by author Joe Abercrombie.

Best Served Cold is an adaptation of the fourth book in Abercrombie’s The First Law series centered on legendary mercenary leader Monza Murcatto and her quest for vengeance after a betrayal. The stories are set in a fictional fantasy world in a constant state of war, reminiscent of early Renaissance-era Europe.

Abercrombie adapted the screenplay, reuniting with Miller who he worked with on a segment of Love, Death + Robots.

Miller last directed 2019’s Terminator: Dark Fate, which was a box office dud that he has been quite vocal about. Actually, Miller has had issues on both films that he’s directed, which could explain why he’s not more active. He did produce the two recent Sonic the Hedgehog movies, too.

Ferguson can be seen now in the Apple TV+ series, Silo, and has Mission: Impossible-Dead Reckoning coming up, along with Dune: Part Two. [Deadline]
