Before then, Mara is busy working on 'A House In The Sky' with Annapurna Pictures, while she also recently finished filming JOE WRIGHT's 'Pan' in London.
Mara has been cast in the role of Tiger Lilly, who has historically been depicted as a Native American.
Filming for 'The Secret Scripture' is set to begin in Ireland in September.
