Maisie Williams (Game Of Thrones) is set to star in an adaption of post apocalyptic novel The Forest Of Hands And Teeth.
In a futuristic world where most of the human race has been taken by a bloodthirsty virus that leaves them roaming the planet as unconsecrated cannibals. Mary (to be played by Williams) seeks a bigger world beyond the fenced off village of survivors, and the survival of the human race seems dependent upon her success in leading a ragtag group through the dark depths of The Forest of Hands and Teeth.
Actress Kate Maberly (The Secret Garden, Finding Neverland) is set to direct and adapt this project. She said:
I am so incredibly excited to be stepping into the ‘Forest’ and collaborating with such a brilliant creative mind as Doug’s. We can’t wait to bring Ryan’s fantastical world to life, and are absolutely thrilled to have Maisie on board.
