Daisy Ridley is currently deep into filming Star Wars VIII, and although she may be busy meeting Prince Harry she’s also making room for another film with JJ Abrams.

According to Variety, Ridley is set to appear in Abrams’ supernatural drama Kolma, a remake of the Israeli TV movie Kol Ma - which translates to “All I’ve Got”.

The story centres on a man who died in a car accident 50 years ago and is waiting for his wife in the afterlife. When she dies, she is given the choice to return to the moment of the accident or reuniting with her lover. It all sounds very unlike Star Wars.

Ridley and Abrams worked together on last year’s phenomenal blockbuster Star Wars: The Force Awakens, with Abrams selecting the unknown actor to play Rey after being impressed with her audition.

The film will be co-produced by Abrams’ Bad Robot Productions and Paramount, the two studios having previously worked together on Cloverfield, Star Trek and Mission Impossible: Rogue Nation.
