“Happy Death Day” breakout star Jessica Rothe will appear in a recurring role on Amazon’s upcoming adaptation of cult British series “Utopia”
The series follows a group of young adults who meet online and are mercilessly hunted by a shadowy deep state organization after they come into possession of a near-mythical cult underground graphic novel that serves as the organization’s blueprint for world domination – including events yet to happen.
Rothe will play Samantha – idealistic, sharp-witted, and a natural born leader, she earnestly believes in changing the world through action and scoffs at cheap rhetoric about progress.
She could school any comic book nerd about the graphic novel ‘Utopia’ and is embarking on a mission to uncover its secrets. John Cusack, Sasha Lane, Rainn Wilson, Dan Byrd and Cory Michael Smith star in the series which hails from “Gone Girl” author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn.
“Utopia” will be available exclusively on Prime Video in more than 200 countries and territories.
