The film, written and directed by J Blakeson (The Disappearance of Alice Creed), will follow legal guardian Marla Grayson, known for her successful work of using the law to the benefit of herself but to the disservice of her clients. However, she appears to have met her match when she cherry picks the seemingly perfect client whose looks are deceiving.

Oscar-nominated star Pike, best-known for her roles in the acclaimed David Fincher adaptation of the bestselling thriller novel Gone Girl, the concluding installment in Edgar Wright’s Blood & Cornetto trilogy The World’s End, the 2016 romantic biopic A United Kingdom and the 2017 western Hostiles, has signed on to star as Grayson.

Dinklage’s role on the project is currently being kept under wraps. The 49-year-old actor is well-known for his role as Tyrion Lannister on the acclaimed HBO series adaptation of the fantasy novel franchise Game of Thrones, which just concluded its eight-season run on the network, but still found time away from shooting the show to appear in Avengers: Infinity War and The Angry Birds Movie 2, the latter of which is set to hit theaters on August 14.
