The 26-year-old actress won an Emmy for her role in “Black Mirror” and is set to appear in Sir Kenneth Branagh’s Death On The Nile and will play the female lead in Sir Steve McQueen’s television adaption of “Small Axe.”
The project will be directed by Polish filmmaker Agnieszka Smoczynska in her English-language debut. It is being produced by Anita Gou, Ben Pugh, Joshua Horsfield, and Klaudia Smieja-Rostworoska.
The script has been written by Andrea Seigel and is based on The Silent Twins, a book by investigative journalist Marjorie Wallace.
The drama will begin shooting in April, but it is not the first time the story has been covered on-screen.
The twins were the subject of a 1986 documentary, as well as a follow up in 1994, called Silent Twin — Without my Shadow after Jennifer’s death.
