According to Deadline, Downton Abbey vet Michelle Dockery has been cast to join Tom Hanks and Robin Wright in Sony Pictures and Miramax’s upcoming film adaptation of Richard McGuire’s graphic novel Here. Further details about her character are still being kept under wraps.

Dockery gained recognition for her performance as Lady Mary Crawley in the acclaimed period drama Downton Abbey, which earned her multiple Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. Besides Here, she will next be seen in the action thriller Boy Kills World with Bill Skarsgard and Jessica Rothe.

Here will be directed by Robert Zemeckis (Back to the Future trilogy) from a screenplay he is co-writing with Eric Roth. The film adaptation will be produced by Playtone and ImageMovers. In addition to Hanks and Wright, MCU vet Paul Bettany and Yellowstone star Kelly Reilly have also been cast for the project.

Set to take place from the past to the distant future, the story will center around a corner of a room and the many people who have inhabited it over the years. Richard McGuire originally published the Here as a 6-page coming strip in 1957. Over five decades later, the graphic novel version of the story was released in 2014 by Pantheon Books.

This marks Zemeckis, Roth, and Hanks’ latest collaboration since 1994’s Forrest Gump, which earned them individual Oscar Awards, including for Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Adapted Screenplay. Zemeckis and Hanks most recently worked together on Disney+’s live-action/CG-animated musical fantasy film Pinocchio.
