Natalie Dormer Will Travel IN DARKNESS For Revenge Thriller
As we await the fate of Queen Margaery on HBO's Game of Thrones, the actress who portrays her is keeping busy. According to Deadline, Natalie Dormer has signed on to star in a film called In Darkness, a psychological revenge thriller from director Anthony Byrne that Dormer wrote alongside the director.
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.
Sounds like it's maybe a twist on Hitchcock's Rear Window, except with sound instead of sight playing a major factor this time. Former Game of Thrones actor Ed Skrein (who played Daario Naharis before moving on to The Transporter Refueled and Deadpool) will co-star alongside Dormer and Nymphomaniac and High-Rise actress Stacy Martin.
Dormer will next appear in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2 in November, and then she'll topline the horror thriller The Forest, which is in theaters in January of 2016. Since this will be her first writing credit, I'm interested to see how the film fares from a writing standpoint. Production starts early in 2016, and we'll be keeping you up to date as soon as we see any images or trailers to share with you.
