Daisy Ridley, or Rey from The Force Awakens, has been cast in a new adaption of Hamlet. Based on the book, Ophelia by Lisa Klein, this adaptation focuses more on the women of the story Hamlet. Ridley will be playing Ophelia, while Naomi Watts has been cast for the role of Queen Gertrude. There is no word on when it will start filming, but we are rather intrigued with the idea. Clair McCarthy has signed on to direct, and says that Ridley seems to have the exact energy for the role. We will bring you more news as it unfolds.
