Alicia Vikander is set to star in an adaption of thriller The Marsh King’s Daughter by Karen Dionne.
Vikander will play Helena, a woman living a seemingly ordinary life, but hiding a dark secret within: that her father is the infamous “Marsh King,” the man who kept her and her mother captive in the wilderness for years. After a lifetime of trying to escape her past, Helena is forced to face her demons when her father unexpectedly escapes from prison.
Morten Tyldum is set to direct with the film scheduled to start production in the summer of this year. Vikander will be seen next in the reboot of video game adaption Tomb Raider.
