Neil Jordan’s upcoming thriller The Widow has moved to bring in one of genre’s hottest rising stars, Maika Monroe.
Via Deadline, Monroe – who has quickly made a name for herself with the likes of The Guest, It Follows and Independence Day: Resurgence – has landed the role of Erica, the protective best friend of Chloe Grace Moretz’s lead, France.
To give you an idea of the film’s plot, Moretz’s role is described as “a young woman who returns an elderly widow’s lost purse, leading to an unlikely relationship between the two – until the young woman discovers her elder might not be all that she seems and that she’s downright dangerous”.
Already on board to join Moretz and Monroe in The Widow is Isabelle Hupert, and the screenplay has been put in place by Ray Wright, best known to genre fans for penning the redo of George A. Romero’s The Crazies.
