Variety is reporting that Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams, who plays fan favourite Arya Stark in the hit show, will star in a new horror called Forest of Hands and Teeth (love that title!)
Maisie Williams is in negotiations to star in writer/director Kate Maberly adaptation of “The Forest of Hands and Teeth.”
Maberly is also producing the film with Doug Liman through her Hetherwood Productions.
Based on Carrie Ryan’s New York Times best-seller, the story is set “sometime in the future,” in a world where most of the human race has been taken by a bloodthirsty virus that leaves them roaming the planet as cannibals. Mary (Williams) seeks a world beyond the fenced-off village of survivors. The survival of the human race soon becomes dependent upon her success in leading a ragtag group through the dark depths of the Forest of Hands and Teeth.
“I am so incredibly excited to be stepping into the ‘Forest’ and collaborating with such a brilliant creative mind as Doug’s,” Maberly said. “We can’t wait to bring Ryan’s fantastical world to life and are absolutely thrilled to have Maisie on board.”
