Daisy Ridley to Star in Neil Burger's New Thriller.

Daisy Ridley is attached to star in the psychological thriller "The Marsh King’s Daughter" that will be directed by "Divergent" filmmaker Neil Burger.

Ridley will play Helena in the film, a woman living a seemingly ordinary life, but hiding a dark secret: her father is the infamous "Marsh King", the man who kept her and her mother captive in the wilderness for years. After a lifetime of trying to escape her past, Helena is forced to face her demons when her father unexpectedly escapes from prison.

Neil Burger is directing the film, which has a script adapted from Karen Dionne's bestseller by Mark L. Smith and Elle Smith.

The package for "The Marsh King's Daughter" will be presented to buyers at the European Film Market by Black Bear, Anonymous Content and STX International.

"The Revenant" writers Mark L. Smith and Elle Smith adapted the screenplay based on Dionne’s book. Principal photography is expected to begin this summer in Canada.
