Emma Thompson is starring in the new action thriller ‘The Fisherwoman’, which is currently in pre-production.

Brian Kirk helms the production with Nicholas Jacobson-Larson and Dalton Leeb having penned the script. 

The story follows Emma Thompson as a widowed fisherwoman who, while trapped in a Minnesotan blizzard, interrupts the kidnapping of a teenager and soon finds she is the young victim’s only hope.

"Dame Emma Thompson is a phenomenally talented artist and the perfect incarnation of our film’s titular character", says Jon Berg, president of production at Stampede Ventures, which is putting up some of the financing for the movie. "We couldn’t be more honored and excited to see her embody a character that shares her unique strength, grit and intelligence".

The distribution rights will be on sale at this month's European Film Market in Berlin.
