The 24-year-old Irish actress is said to have beaten over 100 hopefuls to land the part, opposite Taron Egerton, reported Deadline.
The Otto Bathurst-directed film will go into production next summer right after Egerton wraps the sequel to “Kingsman: The Secret Service”.

Hewson made her feature film debut in 2005 with “Lost and Found”. She’ll stars alongside Tom Hanks and Mark Rylance in the Steven Spielberg directed “Bridge Of Spies”.”
