Call of the Wild

Karl Makinen is set to join the supporting cast of “Call of the Wild,” starring Harrison Ford, Omar Sy, Dan Stevens, and Colin Woodell.

Ford plays John Thornton, a prospector searching for gold in the unforgiving Yukon, in the adaptation of the classic Jack London novel.

Chris Sanders (“The Croods”) is directing “Call of the Wild” from a script by Michael Green (“Logan”). Erwin Stoff is producing, with Diana Pokorny serving as executive producer and Ryan Stafford working as co-producer. Steve Asbell will oversee the production for 20th Century Fox. The movie will be shot in California, both on location and on sound stages, where it will use technology that will help the filmmakers create dog-sled racing sequences. Technoprops, a visual effects studio that was purchased by Fox in 2017 and renamed Fox VFX Lab, will work on bringing the dogs to life.

Karl is best known for his recurring role as Richard on “The Walking Dead” season 7. Other recurring roles include: “Twin Peaks” (Showtime) and “Strange Angel” (CBS All Access). He is repped by CTA and Alan Siegel Ent.
