Game Of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer has been set to star in In Darkness, a psychological revenge thriller directed by Anthony Byrne from a script co-written by Dormer and Byrne. XYZ Films has just acquired international sales rights and will present the project to buyers at the upcoming American Film Market. UTA is handling U.S. sales, and production is set to start early next year.
The pic centers on a blind musician (Dormer) who gets pulled into London’s dark underbelly after she hears a murder committed in the apartment above her. As she becomes embroiled in this violent and murky world, it appears she is out of her depth — until we realize she has been following her own path of revenge for some time. Ed Skrein and Stacy Martin co-star.
42’s Ben Pugh and Josh Varney are producing alongside Byrne, with Rory Aitken and Josh Horsfield executive producing.
Dormer is next up in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 and Focus Features’ The Forest, set for an early 2016 release. She also toplines Screen Gems’ Patient Zero and is returning for Season 6 of Game Of Thrones. She’s repped by UTA, Untitled Entertainment and United Agents in the UK.
