Katherine Waterston is joining the cast of QUEEN OF EARTH. Alex Ross Perry is writing and directing the thriller, which follows two women who go on a retreat to a beach house to get away from the pressures of the world, but the isolation forces them to confront how disconnected they have become from each other, and they succumb to paranoia. Elisabeth Moss will also star in the project, which Michelle Dockery was previously attached to but dropped out due to scheduling.
Waterston got her start with a minor role in Tony Gilroy’s “Michael Clayton” before going on to roles in “Taking Woodstock,” “Robot & Frank,” and “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” trio of films. She also had a short stint on HBO’s “Boardwalk Empire” as Emma Harrow. Among her upcoming projects, Waterston will star in Paul Thomas Anderson’s upcoming “Inherent Vice” alongside Reese Witherspoon and Josh Brolin.
