Deadline is reporting that Kate Beckinsale is set to star in Prisoner’s Daughter, a new family drama film from director Catherine Hardwicke (Thirteen, Twilight).
Scripted by Mark Bacci, Prisoner’s Daughter revolves around “a tough but proud ex-con who’s struggling to find a way to reconnect with his only daughter and grandson; once he begins an attempt at reconciliation, his violent past once again catches up to him.”
“Mark Bacci’s script is a raw, personal look at a deeply fractured family, similar to my first film Thirteen,” said Hardwick. “With Prisoner’s Daughter, I want to fully immerse the viewer in Kate’s character’s intense world as she, her father and her young son try to heal generational family trauma and find a new way forward”
Beckinsale will next be seen in the action comedy Jolt, and also has Charlie Day’s El Tonto on the horizon along with the Paramount+ series Guilty Party.
