Daisy Ridley, known for the role of Rey in the Star Wars sequel trilogy will officially star in the upcoming futuristic thriller Mind Fall, which will be directed by written by Graham Moore and directed by Mathieu Kassovitz, confirmed by Deadline.
Ridley started her acting career in 2013 and made a breakthrough two years later as Rey in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and she reprised the role in The Last Jedi, The Rise of Skywalker, and several other Star Wars projects, including the video game Star Wars: Battlefront II.
Apart from Star Wars, she also acted in a star-filled Kenneth Branagh movie Murder on the Orient Express, Ophelia, a reimagining of famous tragedy Hamlet, told from Ophelia’s point of view, and Chaos Walking, where she starred alongside Tom Holland.
In Mind Fall, Ridley will star as Ardis Varnado, and Deadline offered us a synopsis of the movie:
“Mind Fall takes place in near-future London, where the most sought-after drug on the black market is memories, physically removed from one person’s brain and implanted into another’s using a new illegal technology. Top trafficker, Ardis Varnado (Ridley) removes reminiscences from those looking for a quick buck, and then resells them to “clients,” who pay top dollar for these “mems” that bind to their subconscious, effectively becoming indistinguishable from their natural memories. Meanwhile, she battles her own addiction to the mems, often struggling to distinguish between the life she’s lived and the memories she’s implanted. So, when she’s accused of murdering one of her clients, Ardis’ instinct is to doubt her own mind. She decides to solve the crime herself, hoping to clear her name but questioning everything she’s ever thought to be real. And as she pulls back the layers, she realizes that she has every reason to do so.”Source: Deadline
