The two young stars, from Black Panther and The Crown, will star in the movie to be directed by Frank Berry, with Donna Eperon, Aoife O’Sullivan and Tristan Orpen Lynch producing for Subotica Entertainment, THR says.
Provision will tell the story of Ishtar Deresse (Wright), a young African woman fleeing persecution who ends up spending over two years in Ireland’s asylum system, under constant threat of deportation.
While there, she befriends a security guard (O’Connor), who emphasises with her plight. However, the more their growing connection develops, any possible future together comes under frequent threat in an environment where asylum seekers are deemed to be just numbers.
Shooting is expected to start in April in Ireland.
Letitia is currently filming Black Panther 2, and will next be heard in this animated movie!
