Emily Bett Rickards Is Going to Be in a Science Fiction Movie That I Don't Understand

A new science fiction movie just cast a bunch of kick-ass ladies to star in it, including the actress behind Arrow’s beloved Felicity Smoak. It’s a science-fiction thriller called Slumber about a woman who wakes up from a coma and tries to piece together her past and find her missing daughter... and I have no idea who is playing what.


Rickards, Darby Stanchfield (Scandal), and Meaghan Rath (Being Human) have all been cast in the film. Presumably one of these women is the mother and the others are people from her past who show up on her journey. But which one is the mother? I have no clue. The story in Variety, the only place I can find anything about this film, doesn’t say. (I do know this isn’t the same Slumber as this movie with Maggie Q, but that’s it.)

The young actress Lulu Wilson (Ouija 2) has also been cast in the film, and presumably she’s playing the daughter. I looked her up to see if she sort of resembled any of the three actresses (who are, helpfully, blonde, redheaded, and brunette right now); Wilson, of course, has a kind of auburn hair that could indicate she’s the offspring of any of the leads. Meanwhile, Chris Mulkey (Whiplash), Richard Harmon (The 100), and Isaiah Mustafa (Shadowhunters) will also star, presumably some form of family or love interests to the women. Maybe. Who knows?


If this movie wanted my attention, this frustrating rabbit hole I’ve gone down is a good marketing plan. Also, there’s a chance I may need to take a nap.
