Turner set to star as Josie, a high school student who develops an eyebrow-raising relationship with Hank, a solitary and dull man played by McDermott. Witch star Anya Taylor-Joy and Boardwalk Empire actor Shea Whigham were originally attached to the roles, but fell out after things didn’t pan out. Luisa Iskin and Kim Leadford of StarStream Media are producing alongside Ash Sarohia and John Wunder.
In addition to her wildly popular role as Sansa Stark on HBO’s Game of Thrones, Turner recently starred as mutant telepath Jean Grey in Bryan Singer’s X-Men: Apocalypse. She is set to appear in the upcoming drama Alone with Ray Liotta.
