Jamie Bell (“Rocketman,” “Film Stars Don’t Die in Liverpool,” “Billy Elliot”) will star alongside Emmy Award-winner Elisabeth Moss and Wagner Moura in “Shining Girls,” a new metaphysical thriller based on the 2013 best-selling novel by Lauren Beukes. The series will be adapted for television and executive produced by Silka Luisa, who also serves as showrunner.

Leonardo DiCaprio serves as executive producer through Appian Way alongside Jennifer Davisson. Author Lauren Beukes and Alan Page Arriaga will also serve as executive producers on the project.
