Taron Egerton has been set to star in the crime thriller ‘She Rides Again,’ based on the novel of the same name by crime author Jordan Harper.

The film has been granted a SAG-AFTRA interim agreement and is set to begin principal production in early 2024.

Egerton will play Nate, a recently released criminal who has made a number of dangerous enemies. After he finally gets out of jail, he vows to make a fresh start, which means cutting off the powerful gang he was working for behind bars. When they vow to get revenge by coming after his family, Nate goes on the run with the 11-year-old daughter he hardly knows, Polly. As they go on a desperate ride to shake off Nate’s enemies, Polly must learn to survive – and Nate watches her transform from a timid girl into an impressive force. Meanwhile, her ex-con father learns to love unconditionally.

Nick Rowland (Calm With Horses) will direct from a screenplay written by Ben Collins and Luke Piotrowski (The Night House) with revisions by Rowland.

Fifth Season are fully financing and producing the picture alongside Brad Weston and Collin Creighton for Makeready, and Hiro Murai and Nate Matteson for Superfrog. Egerton will serve as an executive producer.
