The film was written by Kevin Armento, Stefanie Abel Horowitz, and Katy Wright-Mead; and produced by Alex Saks, Ridley, Dori Rath, Lauren Beveridge and Brett Beveridge.
The film follows Fran (Ridley) who is lost on the dreary Oregon coast and finds solace in her cubicle, listening to the constant hum of officemates and occasionally daydreaming to pass the time. She is ghosting through life, unable to pop her bubble of isolation, when a friendly new coworker, Robert, persistently tries to connect with her. Though it goes against every fiber of her being, she may have to give this guy a chance. Director Rachel Lambert and team craft beautiful cinema for this delicately told story of love for the socially awkward and emotionally challenged.
O-Scope’s Dan Berger said, “There’s so much that Sometimes I Think About Dying nails about the coexisting mundanity and beauty of life,” said O-Scope’s Dan Berger. “The script by Kevin, Stefanie, and Katy is wry and touching in equal measure, and the tone struck by Rachel’s direction and all the performances—led by Daisy and Dave—perfectly toe that line. This is a movie that is so strongly rooted in its world, it will transport you there and it will make you laugh and feel feelings during your stay. It’s a true experience.”
It was recently announced at Star Wars celebration that Ridley would be reprising her role as Rey in one of the Star Wars: New Jedi Order movies with Steven Knight writing and Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy.

Ridley is repped by CAA and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern.
The deal was negotiated with CAA Media Finance on behalf of the filmmakers.
