Sky Atlantic has announced the casting of new stars for its upcoming drama series Tin Star.
Genevieve O'Reilly (Star Wars, The Honourable Woman), Oliver Coopersmith (Dickensian) and Christopher Heyerdahl (True Blood, Hell on Wheels) are among the many new castings the show has brought on board.
The new cast joins stars Tim Roth and Christina Hendricks, with the show currently filming in Canada's Rocky Mountains.
Due to air in 2017, Tin Star is a gritty revenge thriller that tells the story of British expat police officer Jim Worth (Tim Roth), as he takes on organised crime after a member of his family is murdered.
Christina Hendricks stars as the head of a shady oil company, which fights back after Jim makes them his target.
Tin Star is being produced by Kudos, makers of the BAFTA award-winning Broadchurch and Humans, as well as being written by screenwriter Rowan Joffe of 28 Weeks Later fame.
Tin Star is one of many original drama series due to air on Sky Atlantic and Sky 1.
Returning series Penny Dreadful and Fortitude join a host of new shows such as The Last Dragonslayer, The Young Pope and Jamestown.
Sky's original drama has had a successful year, with The Last Panthers and The Enfield Haunting both receiving BAFTA nominations and Stan Lee's Lucky Man netting Sky 1's best audiences ever.
