Agyness Deyn, from model to…stripper?
Yep, Aggy has been cast as a stripper named Flo in the re-make of a 1996 film called Pusher. The story, which was originally set in Copenhagen, is about one week in the life of a drug dealer named Frank. Frank helps Flo leave the country. (We’ll have to see the movie to figure out why she wants out.)
The director, Luis Prieto, told Vogue UK that he didn’t know who Agyness was; he chose her based on her “impressive” audition. The movie will be filmed in Shoreditch, London and is scheduled for a spring/summer 2012 release.
Agyness has slowly been moving from still pictures to the moving kind. Her last film role was as Aphrodite in 2010’s Clash of the Titans–not such a stretch perhaps, but this latest role promises to be a bit dirtier. It’s unlikely that she’ll be wearing a goddess gown, at any rate. And at least we know she’s comfortable stripping down for fashion shoots, as she did for 032c mag two years ago.
Congrats to Aggy on her new project!
