Academy Award-nominated actress Keira Knightley is set to star in an upcoming Netflix film adaptation of best-selling author Ruth Ware's 2016 thriller novel The Woman in Cabin 10. Read more about this movie below.

This will be Knightley's second project with Netflix. She'll be making her Netflix debut in the upcoming British spy thriller series Black Doves, which is slated to be released later this year. Described as a thriller flick, The Woman in Cabin 10 is set to be directed by Simon Stone from a script he co-wrote with Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse.

Stone is best known for directing the films The Daughter and The Dig, while Shrapnel and Waterhouse previously worked together by co-writing the screenplay for the superhero movie Snake Eyes. It's unknown at the moment when filming will start on this adaptation, though. Hopefully, production can get started by the end of this year.

In The Woman in Cabin 10, Knightley stars as a travel journalist who, while on a luxury cruise for a travel assignment, witnesses a passenger being tossed overboard late one night. But here's the issue. No one on the ship believes her story since all passengers have remained accounted for. Determined to find out the truth, the journalist continues to search for answers on her own, ultimately putting her life in danger. Knightley is the only actor who has been cast in the film so far. As new cast additions are announced, we'll be sure to share them right away.

The only other piece of information we know about The Woman in Cabin 10 adaptation is that the production company, Sister, will be producing it with Debra Hayward. Sister is behind television series such as Passenger, The Baby and Netflix's Eric. In addition, Sister's Ilda Diffley is signed on as an executive producer.
