New project alert! Martin is joining Bel Powley in World War II drama, Ashes in the Snow.

Mr. Robot breakout Martin Wallstrom will star opposite Bel Powley in Ashes in the Snow, a World War II drama based on the best-seller Between Shades of Gray by Ruta Sepetys.

The movie, to be directed by Marius Markevicius, is a coming-of-age tale of 16-year-old Lina Vilkas (Powley) who is deported to Siberia amid Stalin’s reign of terror in the Baltic region during WWII. An aspiring artist, she secretly documents her harrowing journey with her drawings.

Wallstrom is the movie’s male lead, playing a Soviet officer taunted for being Ukrainian, who befriends the young girl and her mother. He is a face of kindness in an otherwise cold environment.

Markevicius is producing with Jonathan Schwartz of Super Crispy Entertainment and Zilvinas Naujokas of Tauras Films.
