Cast includes Viola Davis and Emma Thompson
Set in the South, story follows two star-crossed teenage lovers — a local boy and a mysterious new girl — who uncover dark secrets about their families, their history and their town.
Jack O’Connell and Alice Englert are set to star alongside Viola Davis and Emma Thompson. Rossum will play Ridley, Englert’s cousin who became a dark witch on her 16th birthday, which turned the two girls into enemies.
Rossum’s past feature credits include “Mystic River,” “The Day After Tomorrow,” “The Phantom of the Opera” and “Poseidon.” She currently stars on Showtime’s hit series “Shameless.” Thesp is repped by ICM and The Schiff Company.
