Another movie in limbo is The Marsh King’s Daughter, starring Daisy Ridley, Ben Mendolsohn and Garrett Hedlund. The Neil Burger thriller is finished and discussions are going on now about how it can be released. The movie isn’t guaranteed to go through Lionsgate so alternatives are being explored.

Yeah, so this movie opened this weekend. Looks like nobody here cared. Too busy going on about Marvels and the strike. Crawdads this ain't.


I do plan to read the book before seeing the movie.


Hopefully Daisy picks some better movie choices in the future.
