Mireille Enos and Scott Speedman have joined Ryan Reynolds in director Atom Egoyan’s dramatic new movie, the psychological thriller Queen of the Night, according to Deadline.
Reynolds will play a father who goes in search of his missing daughter. While the girl was eight at the time of her abduction, her dad gets new information about the case almost nine years later, which leads him to think his daughter is still alive.
Mireille Enos will be Reynolds wife, who always checks in with the police on her missing daughter’s birthday. She realises that disturbing memorabilia left at her workplace are clues leading to her daughter’s whereabouts. Speedman – who’s just got a lot more spare time to take the role as his TV series Last Resort has been cancelled – will play the cop assigned to the missing girl’s case.
Both of these actors are Egoyan veterans, as Enos recently worked with him on Devil’s Knot, while Speedman appears in the Canadian helmer’s Adoration. Atom Egoyan wrote the original screenplay with David Fraser, with plans to shoot early next year in Ontario.
