British star Jodie Comer will star in an upcoming thriller titled The End We Start From.
The film is produced by actor Benedict Cumberbatch‘s production banner along with SunnyMarch, Hera Pictures, Anton and BBC Film, Deadline reported.
The film is an adaptation of author Megan Hunter’s novel of the same name and is directed by Mahalia Belo from a script by Alice Birch.
The End We Start From is touted as a feminist survival story, set amid an environmental crisis in which London is engulfed by floods. It follows a young family torn apart in the chaos.
Comer plays a mother who tries to find a way home with her newborn child and navigates the most challenging and apocalyptic start to motherhood.
Cumberbatch will executive produce the project alongside Comer, Anton’s Sebastien Raybaud, Cecile Gaget and BBC Film’s Eva Yates.
Comer recently starred in Ridley Scott’s the last duel and Free Guy, opposite Ryan Reynolds. She also picked up her second BAFTA award for the British drama film Help. The actor had previously won a BAFTA award for best actress for her hit series Killing Eve.
