What is Maisie Williams doing after Game of Thrones? Well, she’s not sitting around taking an extended vacation from acting.
Instead, she’s already filming her next project. Williams is set to star in a 1990s-set thriller titled The Owners. The movie, which is based on a comic book, is currently in production in an isolated Victorian mansion near London.
In addition to Williams, we have learned that Sylvester McCoy and Ian Kenny have joined the cast. McCoy is best known for his work in Doctor Who.
The story follows childhood friends Nathan (Kenny) and Terry (Ellis), who are spurred on by sociopath Gaz (Curran) to rob Huggins (McCoy), an elderly local doctor and his wife (Tushingham). Williams plays Nathan’s girlfriend, Mary, who is against the plan, which goes wrong, leading to the tables being turned on the gang. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues.
Sounds similar to the 2016 film ‘Don’t Breathe‘ which features teens attempting to rob an elderly blind man.
The Owners is being directed by Julius Berg based on a script he co-wrote with Matthieu Gompel. No word on a release date, but we will keep you posted.
