Vanessa Kirby, best known for her role as Princess Margaret in the first two seasons of “The Crown,” is set to reunite with director Benjamin Caron for a new project. The two had previously worked together on multiple episodes of the hit series, and now they are teaming up for a movie based on Willy Vlautin’s novel “The Night Always Comes.”

The screenplay for the film is penned by Seattle-based screenwriter Sarah Conradt, known for her work on projects like “Mothers’ Instinct” and “50 States of Fright.” The movie is set to be filmed on location in Portland, Oregon, capturing the essence of the Pacific Northwest setting. The production is scheduled to begin filming in May, with Kirby set to take on another iconic role as Sue Storm, also known as Invisible Woman, in the upcoming “The Fantastic Four” reboot.

Lynette’s character is portrayed as a resilient and determined woman who sacrifices her own needs to take care of her family. The challenges she faces in the face of gentrification and financial struggles add depth to the narrative, showcasing the harsh realities of working-class life.
