Born in Stockholm, Rebecca Ferguson started her acting career with a soap opera, Nya tider, in the early aughts.

In a few years, she became a part of Mission: Impossible‘s roster, paving the way for her to land more mainstream movie and television roles.

What Is Mercy About?

Mercy Is A Futuristic Detective Sci-Fi Drama

Since Mercy is set to be released sometime in 2025, most details surrounding its plot are still under the cover. However, its official synopsis reveals its story will unfold in the near future, where a detective gets accused of a violent crime and must race against time to prove his innocence. Although the details surrounding Rebecca Ferguson’s character in the movie have not been disclosed, the film seems similar to Silo in more ways than one. For instance, Rebecca Ferguson’s Juliette also becomes a Sheriff in Silo and faces accusations after she sets out to find the truth about her world.


However, as Mercy’s plot synopsis suggests, Rebecca Ferguson will not portray the central detective. Instead, Chris Pratt will play the main detective character who will have to prove his innocence in his crime-ridden world. The upcoming sci-fi movie’s cast also includes other familiar names, such as Annabelle Wallis, Kali Reis, Kenneth Choi, and Kylie Rogers, among others. Considering how Rebecca Ferguson has previously been a part of a similar detective sci-fi storyline, it is hard not to be curious about her role in Mercy and how she will portray it.

It may be a little too soon to determine whether Mercy will rank among Rebecca Ferguson’s best sci-fi movies and shows. However, the film’s cast suggests it will certainly feature some incredible performances. Mercy is also being helmed by Timur Bekmambetov, who has previously put his directorial forte on display with 2008’s hit action flick, Wanted. Amazon MGM Studios’ head Jennifer Salke also revealed, “From the moment Chuck Roven brought us Mercy, and we read Marco van Belle’s script, we knew the film was meant for the big screen.” Her confidence in the project speaks volumes about its potential.

Both
Silo
season 2 and
Mercy
will be released sometime in 2025.


With so much working in Mercy‘s favor, it undoubtedly holds the promise of matching the level of Ferguson’s recent sci-fi shows and movies. Since Dune: Part Two has performed exceedingly well at the box office and also holds high critical ratings, Mercy may not be able to dethrone it as Ferguson’s best sci-fi just yet. However, even if it falls slightly short of beating Dune: Part Two with its critical and box office performance, it will still be impressive enough to continue Rebecca Ferguson‘s exciting sci-fi streak.
