Amy Ryan to star in Netflix original film Lost Girls

Friday, May 18th 2018 by Phil Wilkinson-Jones

Netflix has picked up the film Lost Girls, a true-crime story based on the award-winning book of the same name by Robert Kolker.

Amy Ryan, known for her roles in Gone Baby Gone, Bridge of Spies and the US version of The Office, will star as Mari Gilbert, a mother who demands police stay on the search for her missing daughter and in the process discovers a wave of unsolved murders of young female sex workers on the South Shore barrier islands of Long Island.

The film will be directed by Liz Garbus, who will be making her narrative feature debut having received Oscar nominations for documentaries The Farm: Angola, USA and What Happened, Miss Simone?

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lost Girls was previously at Amazon Studios and was due to star American Crime Story and 12 Years A Slave actress Sarah Paulson.

Kate Walsh joins cast of The Umbrella Academy

Last week Netflix announced that Kate Walsh, who played Olivia Baker in 13 Reasons Why, had joined the cast of upcoming original series The Umbrella Academy.

The live action show is based on an award-winning comic book series written by My Chemical Romance singer Gerard Way and illustrated by Gabriel Bá. It follows the estranged members of a dysfunctional family of superheroes as they work together to solve the mystery of their adoptive father’s death.

Walsh is set to play ‘The Handler’, the composed and confident leader of a mysterious, bureaucratic company, and joins an impressive-looking cast that already includes Ellen Page, Mary J Blige, Tom Hopper, Cameron Britton and Robert Sheehan.

Guillermo del Toro's new horror series

Netflix has also confirmed that a new horror anthology series directed by Guillermo del Toro will be coming to the streaming service.

10 After Midnight will feature a selection of stories that are handpicked and crafted by the Oscar-winning director, who has confirmed he will also be directing some of the episodes himself.

Del Toro, who won an Academy Award for The Shape of Water, has previously worked with Netflix on the animated series Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia, which won six Emmys including an Outstanding Performer award for Kelsey Grammer.
