Maisie Williams is attached to star in Julius Berg’s “The Owners” based on Herrmann and Yves Huppen’s comic book of the same name which has been setup at Bluelight and XYZ Films.
Set in rural England during the early 1990s, the story follows childhood friends Nathan and Terry who, inspired by an out-of-town sociopath, attempt to rob the elderly local doctor and his wife.
Williams plays Nathan’s girlfriend Mary who is dead against the plan but the lads are set. Dr. Huggins however won’t go down easy, and a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues.
Berg makes his feature directorial debut on the project from a screenplay he co-wrote with Matthieu Gompel. Filming begins this spring in Kent.
