Andrea Riseborough Joining The “Resistance”
Actress Andrea Riseborough has joined the cast of the upcoming film adaptation “Resistance.” The film will be directed by Amit Gupta and is an adaptation of the World War II novel of the same name from Owen Sheers.
Riseborough will star in the picture alongside Tom Wlaschiha and Michael Sheen. The debut novel from Sheers tells the story of a different World War II than the one we knew. In Sheers’ story Russia has fallen to the Nazis, D-Day was a failure, and portions of Great Britain are in the hands of the Nazis. A group of Welsh villagers awaken one morning to find all their men missing. Riseborough will play one of the young women whose husband is missing.
Riseborough recently received a BAFTA TV nomination for her part in “Margaret Thatcher: The Long Walk To Finchley.”
