The first of Howard Michael Gould’s Charlie Waldo books, Last Looks, is set to hit the screen, starring Charlie Hunnam as the former LA detective Waldo.

He’ll have company from the likes of Morena Baccarin, Lucy Fry, Rupert Friend, Robin Givens, Method Man, Dominic Monaghan and Mel Gibson (in full-on posh bloke mode).

Synopsis time: “Charlie Waldo is an ex-LAPD superstar who left the force and now lives a life of simplicity and solitude deep in the woods. Alastair Pinch (Gibson) is an eccentric actor who spends his days drunk on the set of his TV show. When Pinch’s wife is found dead, he is the prime suspect and Waldo is convinced to come out of retirement to investigate what happened. The case finds Waldo contending with gangsters, Hollywood executives and pre-school teachers, all in pursuit of clearing Pinch’s name… or confirming his guilt.”

Last Looks is set to launch on February 4. Here’s that first look:
