Variety is reporting that Knock, Knock and Blade Runner 2049 star Ana de Armas has signed on to star in Waiting for Helen, a noir thriller which is being directed by Kevin Pollak (Misery Loves Company, The Late Bloomer).
“I needed that extraordinary combination of stunning beauty and breath-taking depth of character,” said Pollak on de Armas’ casting. “Ana was my first choice for Helen, and I feel profoundly lucky to direct her in this role.”
Waiting for Helen is being produced by Julie Yorn (Hell or High Water) and plot details are being kept under wraps.
De Armas has recently wrapped production on Danny Boyle and Richard Curtis’ untitled music comedy, and will next be seen on the big screen alongside Rosamund Pike, Joel Kinnaman and Clive Owen in the action thriller Three Seconds.
