WME Global is handling worldwide sales for the Tokyo-set thriller from Swedish director William Olsson.

Dutch actress Carice van Houten (Game of Thrones) has joined the cast of the Tokyo-set thriller I Am Not a Bird.

Swedish director William Olsson (Reliance) is directing the feature, an adaptation of Catherine Hanrahan’s acclaimed debut novel Lost Girls and Love Hotels. Hanrahan adapted her own book for the screenplay.

In the pic, Alexandra Daddario (San Andreas) stars as Margaret, a young Western woman losing herself in the bacchanal of nighttime Tokyo. Van Houten plays her older friend Ines, a woman who realizes her youthful modeling and partying years in Tokyo are now behind her and is trying to go home.

Filling out the cast are Andrew Rothney, Kate Easton, Takehiro Hira and newcomer Elisabeth Larena. Lauren Mann of Wandering Trail Pictures and Lawrence Inglee of Blackbird are producing the pic. I Am Not a Bird began shooting this week on location in Tokyo.

Endeavor Content's Alexis Garcia and Samantha Racanelli are handling worldwide rights for the film.

Van Houten is repped by UTA.
