Downton Abbey’s Michelle Dockery has partnered up with Mad Men star Elizabeth Moss to star in the upcoming indie film Queen Of Earth. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the actresses will share the lead in the psychological thriller, directed by Alex Ross Perry.
The story centres on Dockery and Moss who play two former best friends who decide to retreat to a beach house to escape the stress of their busy lives. The stay is less than tranquil when the pair realize how distanced and disconnected they have become, and suspicion and seclusion follows. The script for Queen of Earth has been written by Perry. Joe Swanberg, who wrote and directed the 2013 comedy Drinking Buddies will be producing the film. Dockery has recently received her third Emmy nomination for her role as Lady Mary Crawley in Downton Abbey. This year’s Emmy Awards takes place tonight (Monday, August 25).
