Emilia Clarke is moving on from Westeros - to a Florida strip club. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Game of Thrones star has signed on to star in James Franco's upcoming adaptation of the Andre Dubus III-penned novel The Garden of Last Days, which tells the story of different individuals - including a stripper, a terrorist, and another patron - in a Florida strip club over the course of a night, a few days before the September 11th attacks. Though fiction, it mostly focuses on what is known of how the terrorist cell based in Florida spent their last days before going on to hijack one of the flights in Boston.
Clarke will portray a stripper named April who, obviously gunning for parent of the year, brings her 3-year-old daughter to work with her. Her daughter eventually goes missing, and anyone who's ever watched Clarke on Game of Thrones should know she will have absolutely no trouble with that scene.
Though the novel is set in 2001, the film could focus on a fictional present-day attack instead. In addition to directing, Franco will also co-star in the film, and the project will begin production this July.
