'Arrow's Emily Bett Rickards to Star in New Sci-Fi Thriller
On Arrow, Emily Bett Rickards portrays Felicity Smoak, AKA the hero Overwatch, AKA Oliver Queen's sometimes love interest. But soon she'll be moving onto the big screen, starring in the new sci-fi thriller Slumber

The film, which co-stars Scandal's Darby Stanchfield and Being Human's Meaghan Rath, tells the story of a woman who enters a coma after a car accident, and doctors perform an experimental procedure of injecting nightmares into her brain in an effort to wake her up. When she does awake, she discovers that her daughter is missing and she has a spotty memory - or is that just another nightmare? The film is being produced by Diablo Entertainment, who are billing it as a cross between Jacob's Ladder and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

Fans of Rickards are definitely looking forward to seeing her get her due on the big screen, as the film could be the first step toward movie stardom for the talented actress. Production is set to begin on Slumber this summer, with a late 2017 release seeming likely.
