Lena Headey directed the psychological thriller “Violet.”
Lena Headey, who is remembered for her role as Cersei Lannister in HBO’s “Game of Thrones” series, is preparing to direct her first feature film. Headey, who previously directed two music videos, competed in the BAFTA awards with the short film “The Trap”, which was also written by him.
The psychological thriller “Violet”, directed by Lena Headey, who went behind the camera this time for a feature film, is based on the 2019 bestselling novel written by SJI Holliday. Gareth Pritchard will write the screenplay for the movie.
The story of “Violet” revolves around two female travelers who immediately form a friendship and decide to get together for the next leg of their adventure. During the continuing journey of the travelers sharing a carriage on the Trans-Siberian Express, it becomes clear that one of them is not who he claims to be. So which one is lying?
The filmmakers said the story of “Violet” is similar to the BBC’s popular drama series “Killing Eve” and films such as 1999’s “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and 1992’s “Single White Female”. It is not yet clear which names will take place in the cast of the film, which will begin shooting next October.
