Great news! Aisling will join Sandra Bullock and Viola Davis in a new movie. The news is from Collider.
Oscar winner Viola Davis, Mudbound star Rob Morgan and The Nightingale breakout Aisling Franciosi have joined the cast of Sandra Bullock‘s new Netflix movie based on the British miniseries Unforgiven, Collider has learned.
Nora Fingscheidt, who made her directorial debut with Germany’s current Oscar entrant System Crasher, will direct the untitled feature, which was written by Oscar winner Christopher McQuarrie. Graham King is producing under his GK Films banner, while Bullock will produce via Fortis Films, and Veronica Ferres will produce via Construction Film. Executive producers include Nan Morales, Nicola Shindler, Sally Wainwright and Colin Vaines.
Bullock will play Ruth Slater, a woman who’s released from prison after serving a sentence for a violent crime, only to re-enter a society that refuses to forgive her past. Facing severe judgment from the place she once called home, Ruth’s only hope for redemption is finding the estranged younger sister she was forced to leave behind.
Sources say that Franciosi will play Bullock’s younger sister, while Davis and Morgan have been cast as a couple of lawyers who move into Bullock’s old home.
In addition to delivering one of the year’s best performances in Jennifer Kent‘s revenge movie The Nightingale, Franciosi played Lyanna Stark on Game of Thrones, and will soon be seen alongside Mark Ruffalo in Derek Cianfrance‘s HBO series I Know This Much Is True.
