Lena Headey is set to star in Myriad Pictures’ thriller “The Woman of the Woods,” which will be financed and sold worldwide by Scoundrel Media, it was announced Wednesday.

Russell Friedenberg will direct from his own screenplay, and the film will be produced by Heather Rae (“Frozen River”).

In “The Woman of the Woods,” Kelsay (Headey) and her husband have just decided to separate. They agree to go on one last family camping trip in a remote area of the Pacific Northwest to break the news to their young daughter. But an evil presence lurks in the woods – and it soon influences the daughter who succumbs to a strange and frightening world of violence. Upon their return to Seattle, a police detective investigating a series of missing persons becomes convinced that the daughter is responsible. Kelsey must prove her daughter’s innocence – but to do so she must face the terrifying entity – and finds herself spiraling into greater and greater danger.

Myriad/Scoundrel will begin shopping the project to international buyers at the American Film Market.

“‘I’m totally amped to bring ‘Woman of the Woods’ to audiences around the world with Myriad Pictures and the incredibly talented Lena Headey,” said Friedenberg. “Lena brings an authenticity and emotional power to her work that is uncompromising. And Myriad has a track record of elevated and poignant work that we are proud to be a part of. Full speed ahead!”

“We absolutely loved this contemporary gothic thriller script and are excited to work with Heather and Russell. We are also completely smitten with Lena Headey‘s incredible acting ability and know that she will bring this complex leading character of Kelsay fully to light,” said Kirk D’Amico, president/CEO of Myriad.

Myriad’s Audrey Delaney and Kevin Forester negotiated international sales rights to the film with Heather Rae negotiating on behalf of the filmmakers.

Even though Game of Thrones showrunners have repeatedly declared they hope to conclude the fantasy hit around the 70-hour mark, HBO programming president Michael Lombardo for the first time firmly proclaimed the series will go at least eight seasons.

“Seven-seasons-and-out has never been the [internal] conversation,” Lombardo said to critics at the Television Critics Association’s press tour Thursday when a reporter asked if the show would end after seven. “The question is: How much beyond seven are we going to do? Obviously we’re shooting six now, hopefully discussing seven. [Showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss are] feel like there’s two more years after six. I would always love for them to change their minds, but that’s what we’re looking at right now.”

Lombardo’s statement doesn’t mean the series is officially renewed for eight seasons—the current order is only through next year—but it’s the next-best thing.

Lombardo also defended Thrones from criticisms about the show’s violent season 5 content (Sansa Stark’s storyline in particular).

“In the pilot episode we see a 7-year-old boy pushed to seemingly his death from a tower,” Lombardo said. “This show has had violence from the first episode. I can’t speak to any single person’s particular taste, but I think the show is phenomenal. It went to 20 million viewers this year, it went up over 1 million viewers from the prior season. The show continues to grow dramatically. There are no two showrunners who are more careful about now overstepping what they think the line is—and everybody has their own line. [What they show] is critical to the storytelling.”

The president was also asked—of course—if Jon Snow is really dead (especially since actor Kit Harington has recently been spotted in Belfast, where Thrones is primarily shot). Lombardo maintained the same stance as the rest of the show’s team.

“Dead is dead is dead,” he said. “He be dead. Um, yes. Everything I’ve seen, heard and read, Jon Snow is indeed dead.”
