While Oscar Isaac says he will only return to Star Wars if he needs another house, Daisy Ridley can pay for a new house with her leading role in Jane Anderson’s upcoming film Women in the Castle, set in Germany at the end of World War 2. Daisy will co-star alongside Kristin Scott-Thomas in the film adapted from the 2017 best-seller by author Jessica Shattuck.

Adapted by Anderson from Jessica Shattuck’s 2017 New York Times bestseller, the film, set in the ruins of WW2 Germany, follows three women, bound by their past and clinging to each other for a future, who must grapple with the realities of liberation from the Nazis, and face the consequences of decisions they cannot undo.

The film is produced by Anonymous Content’s Rosalie Swedlin (“The Wife”), Doreen Wilcox Little (“Mapplethorpe”) and Michael Scheel (“Berlin Station”).

Jane Anderson previously adapted Meg Wolitzer’s “The Wife,” featuring an Academy Award and BAFTA nominated performance from Glenn Close. Anderson won two Emmys for her HBO miniseries “Olive Kitteridge,” starring Frances McDormand, and was also DGA nominated as writer-director of HBO’s “Normal,” starring Jessica Lange and Tom Wilkinson, which received multiple Golden Globe and Emmy nominations.
