Collins will be joining Kate Mara (House of Cards) and Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz), who were previously announced last year.

Collins’ notable film credits include The Blind Side opposite Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock, the 2013 film adaptation The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones, the romantic dramedy Love, Rosie, Warren Beaty’s Rules Don’t Apply, which earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Motion Picture-Comedy or Musical; and in the action-adventure film Okja co-starring alongside Tilda Swinton, Ahn Seo-hyun and Jake Gyllenhaal. She will next be seen in the upcoming biopics Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile as Elizabeth Kloepfer and Tolkien.
