Maisie Williams has just landed her next major film role.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that the 21-year-old actress has joined the cast of ‘90s-set thriller The Owners.
Williams is best known for her role as Arya Stark in HBO’s hit fantasy series Game of Thrones, which will debut its eighth and final season this April.
The Owners is based on a comic book from the artist Hermann, written by Yves H. It is Julius Berg’s directorial debut. He will direct from a script co-written by himself and Matthieu Gompel.
The story is set in rural England. Williams is on board to play a young woman, the girlfriend of a man who plots to rob the elderly local doctor and his wife. Williams’ character is dead set against the plan, but quickly finds herself in the middle of a nightmare.
“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 when revealing Williams’ participation in the project.
The Owners is scheduled to begin filming this spring in Kent, England.
