CHECK out this first-look image of Daisy Ridley in Ophelia,, which has just been released.

The highly anticipated drama is currently in production in Prague.

The star laden cast includes Naomi Watts, Clive Owen and George MacKay.

Set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is being heralded as a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

Ophelia, played by Star Wars’ Ridley, takes centre stage as the Queen’s (Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet and a forbidden love blossoms.

As war brews, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore Castle apart from within and Ophelia must decide between her true love or her own life in order to protect a very dangerous secret.

Owen will play Claudius, MacKay will play Hamlet, Felton will play Laertes and Terrell will play Horatio.

The film is being directed by Claire McCarthy (of The Waiting City fame), and has been adapted from the book by Lisa Klein by Semi Chellas.
