The Game of Thrones star is set to star in a new thriller, The Owners.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Maisie Williams is officially on-board the ‘90s-set feature, which is helmer Julius Berg’s directorial debut.
Berg is set to direct from a screenplay co-written by himself and Matthieu Gompel. The story is based on a comic book from the artist Hermann, written by Yves H.
Williams will play a young woman living in rural England who finds herself in the middle of a nightmare when her boyfriend plots to rob the elderly local doctor and his wife.
“I’m very proud that Maisie Williams is joining the cast of The Owners. Her already impressive experience will bring great force and vitality to her character and to the narrative of what promises to be a particularly intense thriller. Beyond her great talent she is an actor possessed of a profound humanity with who I am greatly looking forward to working,” Berg said.
The Owners is scheduled to begin filming this spring in Kent, England.
