Gillian Anderson (The Last King of Scotland) and Aidan Gillen (Wake Wood) round out the cast.
Based on the crime-drama novel by Tom Bradby, Shadow Dancer is set to follow an IRA terrorist (Riseborough) who becomes an informer for the MI5.
James Marsh (Man on Wire) is attached to direct, with production scheduled to begin next month in Dublin.
Riseborough will next be seen in the Madonna-directed comedy-romance W.E, while Owen stars in David Schwimmer’s upcoming internet-thriller Trust.
