EXCLUSIVE– Games of Thrones‘ Natalie Dormer has joined the cast of Todd Komarnicki’s God Four, opposite Jai Courtney (Suicide Squad), Michael Douglas and Brenton Thwaites (Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales). Protagonist Pictures is handling international sales on the project, which follows a documentary filmmaker (Courtney) the eve of his 10-year school reunion, who discovers one of his championship rowing crew has just committed suicide. The discovery compels him to look back at his final year at college, a time of rivalry, romance and dangerous secrets.
Komarnicki, who wrote Clint Eastwood’s Sully and produced Will Ferrell’s Elf, wrote and will direct the project, which starts shooting next month. Jason Speer (The Family Fang), Lars Winther (Captain America: Civil War), Peter Winther (The Patriot) and Hadeel Reda (16 Blocks) produce.
Dormer, currently starring in HBO’s Game of Thrones, begins production this summer on indie psychological revenge thriller In Darkness, which she co-wrote with the film’s director Anthony Bryne and will star in, alongside Ed Skrein and Stacy Martin. The film centers around a blind musician (Dormer) who gets pulled into London’s dark underbelly after she hears a murder committed in the apartment above her. Dormer is also set to star in Justin Chadwick’s espionage thriller Official Secrets, alongside Paul Bettany, Martin Freeman, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Harrison Ford. Dormer can next be seen starring opposite Matt Smith in the thriller Patient Zero, from director Stefan Ruzowitsky set for release in 2017. The film focuses on an unprecedented global pandemic that causes the evolution of a new species.
She is repped by Untitled Entertainment, UTA and United Agents. UTA is handling domestic rights.
