Andrea Riseborough, who starred as Wallis Simpson in Madonna’s W.E., is set to star opposite Alexander Skarsgard in Hidden, a horror thriller from Matt and Ross Duffer, who are writing and directing.

Roy Lee, Mason Novick and Lawrence Grey are producing the low-budget Warner Bros. movie, and John Middleton and Sebastian Aloi will exec produce.

The script is described as an elevated horror-thriller about a family hiding in a bomb shelter after escaping a mysterious outbreak. Riseborough will play the wife of Skarsgard and mother of their child.

The movie will shoot this year.

Jon Berg will oversee the project for Warners.
