The script for the film is being kept secret, but Thomas co-wrote the screenplay with John Micklethwait.

Thomas, who directed episodes of “Fleabag” and “Slow Horses,” reportedly made her directorial debut with “The Sea Change,” based on Elizabeth Jane Howard’s novel of the same name, in 2017.

It’s not that project, and it never became one.

The film is currently in development.

Earlier, Marvel filmmakers and brothers Joe and Anthony Russo backed Scarlett Johansson in her “payment dispute” with Disney.

The Russo Brothers expressed their displeasure with Disney’s treatment of Johansson in an interview with ET Canada.

“It was clearly not the right approach for them to handle the problem. “It upset us as artists,” Joe said.

Previously, Disney assured the Avengers star that her Black Widow movie would hit theaters, which “eventually includes her compensation for the film.”

However, the company broke their agreement and released the film in both theaters and on OTT platforms on the same day, affecting ticket sales and, possibly, Lucy’s star earnings.

As a result, the Don Jon actress took the situation to court and sued the studio for abuse; nevertheless, the dispute was later settled out of court.
