Gugu Mbatha-Raw has landed the lead role in the upcoming movie Blood Ties, a dramatic film based on an article in the New Yorker by Nathan Heller.
The movie will be written and directed by Gemini‘s Aaron Katz. Riverdale‘s Cole Sprouse and Chilling Adventures of Sabrina‘s Kiernan Shipka will play a couple in the movie.
Deadline reports that Gugu will play “Detective Reese Rezek, who obsessively investigates the brutal murders of Nancy and Derek Haysom, a seemingly ordinary couple in suburban Virginia. As Reese unravels dark possibilities behind their deaths, two suspects emerge: their daughter, Lizzy (Shipka), and her boyfriend, Jens (Sprouse). Before they can be arrested, the young couple flees for Europe, drawing Reese into an international manhunt and a years-long search for the truth that spanned from 1985-91.”
Blood Ties is expected to be sold at the Toronto Film Festival market.
