A description of the short film reads: “When Mary starts her first job as a cleaner inside a hoarder’s home she finds much more than she bargained for.”
Earlier this year, it was revealed that Gillan was cast in a double role in upcoming sci-fi clone movie Dual.
The film, written and directed by Riley Stearns (The Art of Self Defense), is about a terminally ill woman who decides to clone herself for the benefit of her friends and family.
Gillan will play both the woman with the illness and the new clone, who must face off when the woman makes a miraculous recovery and the clone cannot be decommissioned and they must duel to death.
Meanwhile, Gillan has admitted she initially thought that remaking Jumanji was a mistake when she was approached about the project.
