Mob City femme fatale Alexa Davalos has landed the female lead in Amazon’s pilot adaptation of the 50-year-old Philip K. Dick novel The Man in The High Castle.

Filmmaker Ridley Scott — who in 1982 adapted Dick’s Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? into the big-screen drama Blade Runner — and Frank Spotnitz (The X-Files) will serve as executive producers on the project, which originally was developed as a Syfy miniseries.

The best-selling The Man in The High Castle presents an alternate history in which Nazi Germany and Japan won World War II and the Axis Powers now lord over a fascist United States of America, with the East Coast controlled by the Nazis and the West Coast ruled by Japan.

Per our sister site Deadline, Davalos will plays Juliana, a resident of Japanese-occupied San Francisco who breaks her personal truce with the Empire Of Japan when her half-sister is shot dead in front of her by a soldier. Juliana promptly makes tracks for Colorado, the secret headquarters of the Resistance.

Luke Kleintank (aka Bones‘ Finn) last month landed the male lead in the pilot.

    I remember Alexa Davalos when she was in the 2010 big screen remake of Clash Of The Titans.

    I read this book, but I honestly don’t remember this storyline. Anyway, glad to see her cast in this show. Of the new round of pilots, this is the one I’m most excited about.

    The Man in the High Castle is Philip K. Dick’s best novel. It’s taken a long time for it to be dramatized, so let’s hope they don’t mess it up.
