Robin Wright and Ray Winstone have joined the cast of Netflix’s Damsel, a new fantasy film starring Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown.
The Wonder Woman actress — whose work on the House of Cards streaming service original series earned her eight Emmy nominations — and the Sexy Beast star aren’t the only new additions to the film, either. According to Deadline, Brooke Carter (The Irregulars), Nick Robinson (Love, Simon) and Oscar nominee Shohreh Aghdashloo (The Expanse) have also signed on for the film and will be seen sharing the screen with Angela de Brown and Black Panther. Bassetta.
Directed by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 weeks later), Maid follows a young woman who, after agreeing to marry a prince, learns that her in-laws have actually recruited her as a sacrifice to repay an old debt. Her not-so-happily-ever-after goes from bad to worse too, when she’s thrown into a cave with a fire-breathing dragon, and has to rely on her wits to make it out alive.
Brown is set to executive produce, while Wrath of the Titan’s Dan Mazeau is writing the screenplay. As of now, no official release details have been announced.
Outside of Wonder Woman and House of Cards, Wright’s credits include The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo, The Princess Bride, Blade Runner 2049, and Forrest Gump. Interestingly, she previously worked with Winstone on Beowulf, while Winstone worked with Carter on The Alienist. It will therefore be a reunion throughout the production of the film.
