Andrew Scott to star in 'Steel Country'

Andrew Scott, known for his villainous roles in Sherlock and Spectre, is to lead the cast of Steel Country, a crime thriller that begins shooting in the US later this week.

Bankside Films has come on board to sell the US-set thriller, written by Brendan Higgins and directed by Simon Fellows (Malice In Wonderland), ahead of the Toronto International Film Festival.

Scott will play a small town truck driver who turns detective when a young boy is found dead in a sleepy part of Western Pennsylvania. His investigations turn into an obsession to prove the boy has been murdered, leading to harrowing consequences.
