Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has signed on to star in the 1990s-set thriller The Owners, which is based upon a comic book from artist Hermann and writer Yves H and will mark the feature debut of French TV director Julius Berg (The Crimson Rivers).
“I’m very proud that Maisie Williams is joining the cast of The Owners,” said Berg (via THR). “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.”
The Owners has been scripted by Berg and Matthieu Gompel will see Williams playing “a young woman living in rural England who finds herself in the middle of a nightmare when her boyfriend plots with a friend to commit a burglary, which spirals out of control.”
Williams is set to reprise her role as Arya Stark this April as HBO launches the eighth and final season of the epic fantasy series Game of Thrones. She is also part of the cast of Fox’s X-Men spinoff The New Mutants, which is slated for release later this year, although its fate seems uncertain amid rumors of further delays and the possibility of it being dumped on streaming service Hulu.
