As a deadly game of cat and mouse ensues the would-be thieves are left to fight to save themselves from a nightmare they could never have imagined.”
Autoplay setting: On
Joining Williams and McCoy in the cast are Jake Curran (Spotless, Stardust), Ian Kenny (Solo: A Star Wars Story, Sing Street), Andrew Ellis (Teen Spirit, This Is England), and Rita Tushingham (The Pale Horse, Vera).

PINK NEWS– Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams has said she is “excited” to play a queer superhero in love in upcoming X-Men spinoff The New Mutants.
The film will feature a relationship between superheroes Rahne Sinclair (Williams) and Danielle Moonstar, played by Blu Hunt.
Speaking on a panel at Comic Con @ Home, Williams spoke of the importance of representing same-sex love on-screen.
“It was really wonderful to be able to see a relationship look like this,” Williams said.
“In the typically quite masculine world of superheroes, it was just lovely to see these two fragile women who just protect one another and bring light out in each other, but I’m glad that the fans are so excited for it because I think it’s really important to see relationships like this.”
Maisie Williams said her storyline in The New Mutants is a ‘really lovely love story’.
She continued: “I think at the heart of it is just this really lovely love story. It just brings it back to reality, I think.”
Meanwhile, Hunt spoke of her nerves at kissing Williams during a screen test for the film.
“You can’t imagine how nervous I am. Like, oh, I have go kiss Maisie Williams? It was very nerve-racking.”
Josh Boone, the film’s director, said the relationship is the “spine” of the movie.
I think at the heart of it is just this really lovely love story. It just brings it back to reality, I think.
“We just wanted to have them be characters that you fell in love with as they fell in love,” he said.
