Daisy Ridley never let Star Wars stand in the way of other films she really wanted to do, but clearly there must be a lot more free time now that it’s over. She’s quickly jumped into her next major film, and it’s going to team her up for the first time with Radio Silence, the filmmaking trio behind hit thriller, Ready or Not.
Deadline reports Ridley will star in an adaptation of Swedish author Camila Grebe’s bestselling book, The Ice Beneath Her. The story, described as in the vein of Gone Girl and The Girl On the Train, follows a detective and a profiler as they track down a murderer who left a woman’s severed head in the home of a prominent businessman.
Caitlin Parrish, a writer on Arrowverse series Supergirl, has adapted the novel for the screen.
Radio Silence is comprised of directors Matt Bettinelli-Olpin and Tyler Gillett, along with producer Chad Villella. After the modest $60M success of Ready or Not, the trio have been keeping busy. They’re teaming up with Phil Lord and Chris Miller for a horror-comedy, and have also signed on for a new film in the Scream franchise.
