THR is reporting that Alexis has joing the money laundering thriller “Crypto” alongside Beau Knapp, Kurt Russell and her husband Vincent Kartheiser. The movie is currently shooting in New York.
Beau Knapp, the star of Netflix’s recently canceled series Seven Seconds, will star alongside Alexis Bledel (The Handmaid’s Tale, Gilmore Girls), Kurt Russell (The Hateful Eight), Luke Hemsworth (Westworld), Jeremie Harris (Legion) and Vincent Kartheiser (Mad Men) in the money laundering thriller Crypto.
Directed by John Stalberg Jr., the indie film is written by Carlyle Eubank and David Frigerio based on an original story by Jeffrey Ingber and produced by Yale Prods.’ Jordan Yale Levine and Jordan Beckerman alongside David Frigerio.
Dubbed a thriller in the vein of The Firm and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, Crypto centers on a young anti-money laundering agent (Knapp) tasked with investigating a tangled web of corruption and fraud in his remote New York hometown, where his father (Russell) and brother (Hemsworth) are struggling to maintain their family farm in a changing economic landscape. The agent quickly finds himself enmeshed in a dangerous underworld populated by a mysterious art dealer (Bledel), a crypto-currency enthusiast turned cyber-sleuth (Harris) and a corrupt accountant doing the bidding of ruthless clients (Kartheiser).

Alexis was interviewed by E! News about her career so far and how “The Handmaid’s Tale” was a game changer.
Alexis Bledel got her start in Hollywood with parts in dramedies like Gilmore Girls and The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants, but dramatic roles were what she was really after. Now, that dramatic work has arrived and her first Emmy followed soon after.
As Rory Gilmore, Bledel became a household name in The WB/The CW’s Gilmore Girls. Rory, a brainy teen from the small town of Stars Hollow, had a close friendship with her mother, Lorelai, played by Lauren Graham, that audiences everywhere coveted. It was Bledel’s first major role and one she said helped shape her as an actor.
“Well, it was a really particular kind of training. I mean, it really helped me learn how to memorize dialogue quickly and really comprehensively, which is great for auditioning and any work I get after. It also really prepared me for putting in the hours, I guess. Yeah, it gave me sort of endurance, so I feel like I can hop into TV work more confidently than when I started,” Bledel said with a laugh.
Bledel bounced around between genres with every project during her seven seasons on Gilmore Girls and after, picking up skills wherever she landed. There was the youth-oriented Tuck Everlasting, Sin City, where she played a hooker, the series finale of ER, a guest arc on Mad Men and a Fox sitcom that never saw the light of day.
In 2016, Bledel returned to Stars Hollow in the Netflix revival Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life. It was a brief return home to familiarity for Bledel and audiences, before introducing the world to a role—and performance—that was the antithesis of Rory Gilmore. Her work in The Handmaid’s Tale shocked audiences and garnered critical acclaim.
“I never have had a sense or been able to predict what kind of thing is coming up for me. It always just kind of pops up—I always wanted to do dramatic work, but I didn’t know that [I could], I guess, delve into roles like this one,” Bledel told E! News in a phone interview. “It’s been really fulfilling in a way I didn’t know this job could be. It’s really been incredible.”
This is the second act of Alexis Bledel.
