Abbie Cornish, Tim Roth join Chris Cooper in Discovery's 'Klondike'
Discovery was casting up a storm this week on its first scripted miniseries, "Klondike."
The biggest names joining the Scott Free production are probably Oscar nominee Tim Roth and "Sucker Punch" and "RoboCob" star Abbie Cornish, who will play the female lead in the miniseries, which is based on Charlotte Gray's book "Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike."
"Prison Break" veteran Paul Scheuring is overseeing the project, which focuses on six strangers and their struggle for wealth and survival in a Klondike frontier town.
Joining Cornish and the previously announced Chris Cooper are Ian Hart, Augustus Prew and Johnny Simmons.
Production on "Klondike" begins this month with Simon Cellan Jones ("Generation Kill") directing.
