Carice van Houten of Game Of Thrones has signed on for the drama THE PARTS YOU LOSE where she will star opposite Aaron Paul. The film is planned to shoot in Manitoba, Canada early next spring.
The film centers on a young hearing impaired boy who encounters an injured and potentially dangerous fugitive in his small North Dakota town. The two form an unlikely friendship.
The project is being presented at the American Film Market for international sales by Myriad Pictures. UTA Independent Film Group and Myriad are co-repping the film’s U.S. rights.
Paula van der Oest is set to direct with Mark Johnson and Tom Williams producing through their Gran Via Productions along with Netherlands-based NL Film’s Alain de Levita and Joris van Wijk. Aaron Paul will also produce though his Lucid Road Productions banner.
Buffalo Gal Pictures is handling the Canadian production aspects and Phyllis Lain and Rhonda Baker are executive producing alongside Myriad’s Kirk D’Amico.
Van Houten is best known for her work in HBO’s flagship series Game Of Thrones as the Red Priestess “Melisandre.” She is currently filming Brimstone with Dakota Fanning and her Thrones co-star Kit Harrington.
Van Houten is repped by ICM Partners, Troika in London, and nummer19 in the Netherlands.
