“Game of Thrones” fave Maisie Williams is set to star in “The Owners”, based on a comic book by Hermann and written by Yves H.

The comic, which will be brought to the big screen by tyro filmmaker Julius Berg, tells of a young woman living in rural England who finds herself in the middle of a nightmare when her boyfriend plots with a friend to commit a burglary, which spirals out of control.

Los Angeles, CA/Berlin (February 9, 2019) – It was announced today that Maisie Williams is set to star in the 90’s-set thriller THE OWNERS, directed by Julius Berg, with a screenplay by Berg and Matthieu Gompel, based on comic book from renowned artist Herrmann and written by Yves H. The film is produced by Alain de la Mata at UK-based Bluelight, and executive produced by XYZ Films. XYZ will handle North American sales with Versatile handling international at the upcoming EFM in Berlin. The film will shoot this spring in Kent, close to London, in an isolated Victorian mansion, with casting by Dan Hubbard. 

The story takes place in rural England during the early 1990s. Childhood friends Nathan and Terry, broke and on the scrap heap at 20, are spurred on by an out-of-town sociopath named Gaz to rob Huggins, the elderly local doctor and his wife. Nathan’s girlfriend Mary (Williams) is dead against the plan but the lads are set – the doctor’s house is isolated, there’s a safe full of cash, no none will be home – it’s their way out of the world they’ve been born into. But the Huggins family returns early and is quickly subdued. The intruders are disguised but Dr. Huggins guesses the identity of his captors and reasons with them: stop now, before this goes too far… But it’s too late for that. Desperation leads to violence, the tables are turned and a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, leaving Mary fighting to save herself from a nightmare she could never have imagined.
