Lux Pascal, sister of The Last of Us star and internet boyfriend Pedro Pascal, has bagged herself a role in upcoming thriller film Summer War.

The 31-year-old Chilean actress, who came out as trans in 2021, will star in an as-yet untitled role in the film, which is helmed by Il Futuro director Alicia Scherson.

Summer War will follow the US champion of World War II board game Third Reich as they embark on a peaceful summer holiday. However, their trip takes a dark turn when a local tourist disappears at sea in bewildering circumstances.

The film, which is set to begin production this summer, is based on the novel The Third Reich by late Chilean author Roberto Bolaño. Despite being written in 1989, the book wasn’t uncovered until his death in 2003.

In the novel, war game champ Udo Berger arrives in his childhood holiday destination Costa Brava with his girlfriend. When his friend vanishes at sea, he has to challenge a mysterious local to a game of Third Reich to get answers.
