Entertainment Weekly reports that Girls and Star Wars actor Adam Driver is in talks to join The Last Duel. 

The film from director Ridley Scott is an epic tale of betrayal and justice, told from three points of view — two knights whose bond is tested and a young woman, who’s forced to navigate the brutal and oppressive culture of the era in order to survive.

Driver is set to star as one of the knights opposite Matt Damon. Starring as the young woman is the Killing Eve actress Jodie Comer.

Scott is directing from a screenplay adaptation by Damon and Ben Affleck with Nicole Holofcener. 

Should the period drama get the green light from Disney and Fox, The Last Duel should begin production in early 2020.
