Fellow ‘Star Wars’ Alum Ben Mendelsohn To Play Daisy Ridley’s Father In Thriller ‘The Marsh King’s Daughter’

Yesterday, we were able to confirm production dates for Neil Burger’s upcoming thriller The Marsh King’s Daughter starring Star Wars franchise star Daisy Ridley, that will be filming June to August in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

There is some fresh casting news coming from Deadline as Aussie actor Ben Mendelsohn will be playing the notorious Marsh King in the film.

Helena (Ridley), a woman living a seemingly ordinary life, but hiding a dark secret: her father (Mendelsohn) is the infamous “Marsh King,” the man who kept her and her mother captive in the wilderness for years. After a lifetime of trying to escape her past, Helena is forced to face her demons when her father unexpectedly escapes from prison.

Like Ridley, Ben is a Star Wars alum playing the main antagonist in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. He is also attached to reprise the role of Talos in Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion series for Disney+ and his involvement with The Marsh King’s Daughter would support talk that the MCU event won’t be shooting in the United Kingdom until later in the year.
