Kiwi Academy Award nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes will make her producing debut in the indie film Wellwood. She will also star in the movie, due for release in 2019.
Deadline reports that production has already begun on the sci-fi film. Castle-Hughes spent the Christmas period in New Orleans, where pre-production is taking place.
Her partner Jimmy Uddo is also attached as a producer on the film. While he is new to producing, he has an extensive background in visual effects, having worked on Hollywood blockbusters It, Deepwater Horizon, Fantastic Four and Independence Day: Resurgence.
Since wrapping up filming on Game of Thrones, Los Angeles based Castle-Hughes has appeared in the war drama Thank You for Your Service alongside Amy Schumer and the TV drama Unabomber, with Sam Worthington and Paul Bettany.
Castle-Hughes and Uddo have been seeing each other since 2016 following her split from husband Jonathan Morrison. The actress has remained tight-lipped on her new romance, having gone very public with her relationship with her former husband.
She and Morrison became engaged in September 2012 after a whirlwind 6 week relationship and married on Valentines Day 2013. But long separations as Keisha worked in LA put a strain on their relationship and they eventually split after three years of marriage.
