Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner has booked her first TV role following the conclusion of the HBO fantasy, with Entertainment Weekly reporting that the actress will star alongside Corey Hawkins (Straight Outta Compton) in Survive, a thriller for the upcoming mobile streaming service Quibi.
Based on the novel by Alex Morel, Survive will see Turner and Hawkins as Jane and Paul, “the only two survivors of a plane crash on a remote mountain. The two of them must work together as they combat the elements to make it back to civilization, while confronting personal traumas at the same time, which, in the book, include Jane’s recent suicide attempts.”
[Jane] is a complex character fighting against the odds to not only save her life, but to also find her own source of strength and courage,” said Turner. “I only hope this can impact anyone struggling with self-worth to understand they are braver than they know and to seek the support they need.”
The Quibi streaming service is set to launch in April 2020, and will offer a new form of serialised content in “quick bits” of 10 minutes or less.
