According to Variety, Daisy Ridley has signed on to Marc Forster’s upcoming romantic drama, The Lost Wife, a role that will showcase exactly none of the cool new lightsaber training that Ridley has been showing off on social media this week. Based on the book by Alyson Richman, the film will star Ridley as an art student in 1930s Prague whose love affair is interrupted by the German occupation of Czechoslovakia, which might be a familiar visual for her. It’s the second non–Star Wars project announced in as many weeks for Ridley, who’s also set to reunite with J.J. Abrams on Kolma, a remake of the Israeli film All I’ve Got. No word on if her characters in these films will be good at things.
