Low-budget pic stars Ethan Hawke

“Game of Thrones” star Lena Headey as landed the female lead in Universal’s “Vigilandia,” starring Ethan Hawke.

James DeMonaco will direct from a script he penned. Plot details of the sci-fi thriller are being kept under wraps.

Jason Blum, Michael Bay, Brad Fuller and Andrew Form will produce through Blumhouse and Platinum Dunes along with Why Not Prods. Sebastien Lemercier exec produces.

Universal recently came on producer of the pic, the first film under its first-look deal with Blumhouse.

While Platinum Dunes has been known for making films at a price, the pic reps its first foray into really low-budgeted fare. Sources say the budget would be similar to that of FilmDistrict’s “Insidious” or the upcoming “Sinister.”

Besides “Game of Thrones,” whose second season bows on April 1, Headey can also be seen next in “Dredd,” starring Karl Urban.

She is repped by CAA and TMT Entertainment Group. Hawke is repped by CAA.
