Gwendoline Christie (“Game of Thrones,” “The Hunger Games”) is in negotiations to join the cast of “Darkest Minds” at 20th Century Fox and 21 Laps.
Based on the young adult novel trilogy by Alexandra Bracken, the story is set in an America where a pandemic has killed most children and teenagers. Some of the remaining teens with superpowers are taken from their families and placed inside internment camps.
Amandla Stenberg is Ruby Daly, a 16-year-old with telekinetic powers who escapes her camp and joins a group of teens on the run from the government. Christie will play a bounty hunter of fugitive teens who takes immense pleasure in her vicious job.
Mandy Moore also stars in the film which Jennifer Yuh Nelson is making her live-action directorial debut on. Shawn Levy will produce.
