Alexa Davalos (Clash of the Titans) has been cast as the pilot of the television adaptation of Philip K. Dick's famous novel The Man in the High Castle by producer Ridley Scott, screenwriter Frank Spotnitz and director David Semele. This is reported by the publication Deadline.
Recall that the action of a science fiction novel, published in 1962, describes an alternative reality in which the Second World War ended with the victory of Germany and Japan.
The actress will play a heroine named Juliana, who lives in Japanese-occupied San Francisco. She is fascinated by Japanese culture and has mastered the art of aikido. However, when a Japanese soldier kills her half-sister Trudy in front of her eyes, Juliana's "temporary truce" with the Land of the Rising Sun comes to an end. Saying goodbye to her past life and grabbing Trudy's bag of propaganda movie, Juliana heads east of Colorado to the secret headquarters of the Resistance. A dangerous road and an unclear future awaits her ahead.
Luc Kleintenk was approved for the lead male role in the upcoming mini-series at the end of August this year.
