Claire Foy has left her crown as Elizabeth II well and truly behind her as she is set to star in the psychological horror ‘Dust’.

Foy will play a young mother in 1930s Oklahoma. Trapped by increasingly stifling dust storms, she takes extreme measures to protect her family while haunted by her past.

The film is said to centre around a remote farmhouse, requires just a small number of roles to be filled.

Will Joines and Karrie Crouse will direct from a story by Crouse, whose writing credits include HBO’s ‘Westworld.’
