Star Wars actress Daisy Ridley has lined up her next movie role in a futuristic thriller called Mind Fall, according to Deadline.
Set in a near-future London, Mind Fall will follow Ridley playing a drug trafficker named Ardis Varnado, who peddles memories that can be removed from one person’s brain and implanted into another, the most sought-after drug for her clients. Ardis removes memories from those looking for money and then resells them to clients who will pay almost anything for ‘mems’ that become indistinguishable from their own memories.
After Ardis is accused of murdering one of her clients, she doubts her own mind after a lifetime of ‘mems’ addiction, unable to tell the real memories from the implanted ones. She must try and figure out who the real killer is, while questioning everything she’s ever thought to be real.

Reminiscent of Inception, and other popular sci-fi movies, the Ridley-led film is likely to be a hit.
The film is being directed by Matthieu Kassovitz, who directed La Haine and starred in Amelie, and will be written by The Imitation Game‘s Graham Moore. No other cast members have been announced yet.
This is not the first sci-fi film Ridley has starred in after Star Wars, having recently appeared in the film Chaos Walking alongside Spider-Man‘s Tom Holland. Ridley will also star in The Marsh King’s Daughter, which is currently in post-production but does not have a release date yet.
