Daisy Ridley in talks for The Lost Wife
Daisy Ridley is set to star in 'The Lost Wife'.
The 24-year-old British actress is now a star in demand following her leading role as Rey in 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' and she is now reportedly in talks to take on one of the lead roles in the planned drama.
'The Lost Wife' story has been adapted by screenwriter Marc Klein from Alyson Richman's 2011 book of the same name which is set in pre-World War II Prague and follows the tale of young married lovers art student Lenka and Josef whose lives are changed forever by the arrival of the invading Nazi army.
The couple are separated after being placed in a concentration camp and are reunited 60 years later at their grandchildren's wedding.
Currently no studio or director are attached to the project, but CAA are aiming to sell the rights to the movie at the Cannes Film Market in May.
Away from her 'Star Wars' duties, Daisy is to star in fantasy romance 'Kolma' which is set to be directed by The Diary of a Teenage Girl's Marielle Helller and J.J. Abrams reuniting with Daisy as producer.
Daisy is currently shooting 'Star Wars: Episode VIII', which Rian Johnson is directing, and will be released in December 2017.
