Sophie Skelton, who starred in Outlander, has been cast in the leading role of the upcoming film Row.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be a thriller and will be directed by Matthew Losasso. It will also star Bella Dayne from the movie Humans, Akshay Khanna from Red, White & Royal Blue, and Mark Trepan from the movie Before We Die. Matthew Losasso is the director.
The plot of the novel is going to follow what happens after a lady washes up on shore in a blood-stained rowboat. Since her crewmates are missing and presumed dead, she will have to piece together her recollections in order to demonstrate that she is innocent of any wrongdoing.
“A vast ocean appears to stretch infinitely in all directions, and yet on board the Valiant, the lack of space fuels paranoia and intense drama,” Losasso remarked. “On the surface, an enormous ocean appears to stretch infinitely.” “It’s a script that is both fascinating and magnificently ambitious.
“If filming on water wasn’t already enough of a challenge, throw in a twisty dark plot, complicated techniques to avoid green screen backdrops, a commitment to capture the rugged beauty of ocean landscapes, and the constraints of independent filmmaking.”
Row was written by Nick Skaugan, and production on the movie is scheduled to begin the following month in Scotland. In order to reduce the need for visual effects (VFX), the production will make use of a specially designed tank.
Fans of Outlander may recognize Skelton from her role as Brianna Fraser in the seventh season of the show, which is now airing the second of its two parts of the two-part seventh season.
Ahead of the show’s debut in June, the actress dropped hints about the show’s unexpected plot turns in an interview with Radio Times. She said, “That’s one thing I think we’re really priding ourselves on now for Outlander and really leaning into it – the storylines aren’t necessarily the expected ones.”
“Therefore, it makes no difference whether you’ve read the books or not; you’re all competing on the same level. We’re going to mess with your feelings and put you on a little bit of an emotional roller coaster. Therefore, we are all in the same boat. You’ve got a bumpy road ahead of you.”
