‘The Last Duel’ and ‘Killing Eve’ star, Jodie Comer, has been set to star in the upcoming apocalyptic thriller ‘The End We Start From.’
Adapted from the acclaimed novel by Megan Hunter, the story is set amid an environmental crisis that sees London submerged by floodwaters, the feminist survival story focuses on a young family torn apart in the chaos. Comer will play a mother who with her newborn child tries to find a way home, navigating the most challenging and apocalyptic start to motherhood.
BAFTA winner Mahalia Belo (The Long Song) will direct from a script by Alice Birch, the playwright and screenwriter who also is a writer and story editor on HBO smash ‘Succession.’

Producers are SunnyMarch’s Leah Clarke and Adam Ackland (The Mauritanian) and Hera Pictures’ Liza Marshall (Temple) alongside Sophie Hunter and Amy Jackson (The Nest).
Producers Clarke, Marshall and Ackland stated: “The End We Start From is very close to our hearts. Megan’s heart-wrenching novel, and Alice’s wonderful adaptation, present a story about motherhood, separation, social and environmental upheaval, and those primal instincts in us which draw moments of joy and inspiration out of the chaos. We are incredibly excited to have Mahalia and Jodie lead this talented creative team in making what we know will be a resonant, riveting film.“
