EXCLUSIVE: After an award-winning spin as Princess Diana on Netflix The crown, Emma Corrin has been chosen to direct Retreat, the limited series of FX from The OA creators Brit Marling and Zal Batmanglij. Corrin will play Darby Hart, the amateur sleuth at the center of a murder mystery set in a secluded retreat.
Marling will play a key role in Retreat, a radical conceptualization of thriller with a new kind of detective at the helm – an amateur Gen Z sleuth named Darby Hart (Corrin).
