In addition to reprising her role as Rey in Star Wars: Episode VIII, Daisy Ridley has several more projects on the horizon. The actress was recently cast in The Lost Wife and Kolma. Now she’s in final negotiations to star in a reimagining of Hamlet.

According to Variety, this interpretation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy will center on Ophelia, the woman who loved Hamlet. Based on Lisa Klein’s young adult novel, Ridley is set to play the title character of Ophelia. Naomi Watts is also in negotiations to star as Hamlet’s mother, Queen Gertrude.

It’s unknown when Ophelia will hit theaters, although Claire McCarthy is likely to direct.
