Clive Owen, Tom Felton, George MacKay, and Devon Terrell have joined the cast of Daisy Ridley’s romantic tragedy “Ophelia.”
Producer and Covert Media CEO Paul Hanson made the announcement Tuesday. The film begins principle photography later this month on location in Prague with Claire McCarthy directing.
“Ophelia” is based on the novel by Lisa Klein and adapted for the screen by Semi Chellas (“Mad Men,” “The Eleventh Hour”). Covert Media is financing the feature and producing with Daniel Bobker and Ehren Kruger (“The Brothers Grimm”) and Sarah Curtis (“Hysteria”). Executive producers include Covert’s Elissa Friedman and Media Content Capital’s Sasha Shapiro and Anton Lessine (“Fading Gigolo”).
