As rumored, Jodie Comer–star of Killing Eve and Disney’s Free Guy–will appear in Ridley Scott’s Napoleon Bonaparte movie Kitbag alongside Joaquin Phoenix.
Comer confirmed the casting rumors in an interview with Variety. As suspected, she will play Napoleon’s wife, Josephine. Comer recently worked with Scott on the period drama The Last Duel, which releases in October, and she was eager to work with Scott again.
“I just jumped at the chance to work with Ridley and his team again and the idea of working with Joaquin, who’s someone who I hugely admire,” Comer said. “I think for me, what I’m learning is […] you learn and you grow so much by being and working with the people that you’re working alongside. And I just think having that opportunity–I’m so excited to delve into that world.”
