Katie Holmes is set to star with Meryl Streep and Jeff Bridges in the Phillip Noyce-directed film, The Giver.

The sci-fi project tells the story of a society in which there is no conflict, racism or sickness, says the Hollywood Reporter.

Australian actor and former Home and Away star Brenton Thwaites is set to star in the film as a young boy selected for his life to work as the Receiver of Memories for The Giver, who will be played by Bridges. The Giver teaches the boy to use the gift of his senses.

Streep will play the society’s Chief Elder while Holmes will play the boy’s mother.

The film is set to shoot in South Africa while Streep will film her scenes in the UK.
