English actress Gugu Mbatha-Raw (‘Miss Sloane,’ ‘Black Mirror,’ ‘Free State of Jones’) has been tapped for the lead role in the super-powered thriller ‘Fast Colour,’ with Julia Hart her (‘Miss Stevens’) directing.

Mbatha-Raw will play a woman named Ruth who is forced to go on the run when her superhuman abilities are discovered. Years after having abandoned her family, the only place she has left to hide is home.

Principal photography kicks off in New Mexico in March with a script by Hart and Jordan Horowitz. Producers include Horowitz, Mickey Liddell and Pete Shilaimon.
