‘The Chronicles of Lizzie Borden’ star Christina Ricci is set to join the cast of ‘The Dresden Sun,’ an indie science fiction film from director Michael Ryan, who also helmed 2007’s ‘The Silencer & the Sky.’

Ricci joins as the character “cosmic technology” inventor Dr. Dresden Corliss, who is still grieving the loss of a loved one. She is joined in the cast by Samantha Win (‘Zack Snyder’s Justice League,’ ‘Army of the Dead’) and Terry Maratos (‘You Only Live Once,’ ‘3 Days with Dad’).


Deadline reports that the “film observes as a heist goes south when a brilliant, principled mercenary with a traumatic past works with an insider to steal a valued asset from Peredor Corporation called “the sphere.” The C & Earth corporation, vying for global dominance, seeks to find a solution to an otherworldly technology via a scientist’s project. Meanwhile, a financial analyst, who despises his job at the powerful investment firm Mutual One, finds himself caught between deadly corporate rivals, financial fraud, and technological espionage, and is ultimately forced to run from a psychopathic military contractor.”

Ryan is not only directing the cyberpunk movie but also serves as the writer as well as the co-producer with Tyler Lockamy through their Archetype Pictures film production banner. Alex Newport (‘Underground Inc: The Rise & Fall of Alternative Rock’) is handling the musical score.

Christina Ricci can currently be seen on the Showtime horror drama ‘Yellowjackets,’ but the veteran actress has also appeared in such shows as ‘Ally McBeal’ and ‘Pan Am.’ She also appeared in several films including ‘Speed Racer,’ ‘The Smurfs 2,’ ‘Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star,’ ‘Black Snake Moan,’ ‘The Addams Family,’ ‘Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas,’ and ‘Alpha and Omega.’

She is set to appear in the upcoming sequel ‘The Matrix Resurrections’ and director Chris Sivertson’s horror flick ‘Monstrous.’
