“Star Wars: The Force Awakens” star Daisy Ridley will play the female lead in “The Lost Wife,” based on the novel by Huntington author Alyson Richman.

Variety said that no director or studio is yet attached to the Holocaust love story, about a Prague art student, Lenka, who becomes separated from her husband in the concentration camps.

The novel by bestseller Richman was selected as the “Long Island Reads” book for 2012.

Ridley, 24, is currently filming the next “Star Wars” movie and will star in director J.J. Abrams’ remake of the Israeli movie “Kolma.”
