DEADLINE – Disney’s live action team is negotiating for Daisy Ridley to star and Joachim Rønning to direct Young Woman and the Sea, a Jeff Nathanson-scripted drama based on the book by Glenn Stout that chronicles the daring journey of the first woman to ever swim across the English Channel. Gertrude “Trudy” Ederle made the 21-mile swim in 1926.

The daughter of a German butcher from Manhattan, Ederle was a competitive swimmer who won gold in the 1924 Olympics when she decided to attempt crossing the channel. She undertook the feat after first swimming 22 miles from Battery Park in New York to Sandy Hook, NJ, setting a record that stood for 81 years. She contracted with two newspapers and sold her story, thereby financing her quest. There was actually a race among women who would be first to cross as only five men had done so before.

VARIETYMarion Cotillard (“La Vie en Rose”) is joining Daisy Ridley (“Star Wars”) and Stephen Fry (“Gosford Park”) for the voice cast of “The Inventor,” the forthcoming stop-motion animated family feature about the life of Renaissance master Leonardo Da Vinci. “The Inventor” is written and directed by Jim Capobianco, the Oscar-nominated scribe of “Ratatouille.”

“The Inventor” is the story of Leonardo da Vinci (Fry), whose free-thinking ways clashed with Pope Leo X (Berry), who sent the inventor far from Rome to the more enlightened but reluctant French court of Francis I, his sister Marguerite (Ridley) and his mother Louise de Savoy (Cotillard).

Currently in pre-production with delivery scheduled for spring 2023.

I hadn’t posted about this: back in July, Daisy Ridley has teamed up with UK scribe Elinor Cook, a writer on season 3 of Killing Eve, on Audible Original drama Islanders, about a reality TV contestant.

The Audible Emerging Playwright commission tells the story of a young woman, performed by Ridley, who has always felt invisible. When she becomes a contestant on a televised dating show, she’s thrust into a manufactured paradise. To remain in the game, she tries on different personas and partners. But as the days – or weeks – pass and the lines between truth and fiction blur, she must confront her long-held anxieties about identity and the desire to be seen…all while the cameras are rolling.

‘Islanders’ has just been released, listen to it here and listen to a preview here.

EW – Get an exclusive look at how the actors, including The Lighthouse star Willem Dafoe, recorded video game roles during a pandemic.

Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker’s Daisy Ridley, It Chapter Two’s James McAvoy, and The Lighthouse’s Willem Dafoe lead the voice cast for Twelve Minutes, which begins with one man’s attempt to have a romantic evening at home with his wife (Ridley). The man (McAvoy) — all names are withheld from the player at the start to maintain mystery — witnesses a violent home invasion when an intruder (Dafoe) storms their apartment and knocks him out. The man then wakes up 12 minutes earlier, an experience that will repeat itself until he’s able to figure out the truth behind this tragic event and, hopefully, prevent it from happening altogether.

Not even Ridley knows quite what the ending holds. She may have recorded her lines, but the script, at least to a novice, can be a maze. It looks more like a flowchart, which makes it hard for Ridley to remember all the different dialogue she recorded for what seems, after weeks of four-hour afternoon sessions, like an infinite amount of loops.

In her final recording, in August, Ridley sits in a recording booth in London’s Soho neighborhood as sound technicians idle behind her in masks and Antonio directs her remotely over Zoom from his San Francisco home. “There’s just a lot of story,” she says after one particularly grueling voice-over session performing a series of physical responses (grunts, screams, pants). “It’s pretty dark,” she adds. “It goes from being this very joyous, immediate thing to this pretty dark warren of various options. It’s cool because you as the player are learning more, so you’re trying to figure out more.
