Rosamund Pike, who was last seen in A Private War, is all set to headline Amazon's upcoming adaptation Wheel of Time.

The Gone Girl actor will also serve as producer alongside Ted Field, Mike Weber, Darren Lemke, Marigo Kehoe. Uta Briesewitz, who will direct the first two episodes, is also attached to produce.

The show, which has been long in the works, is based on Robert Jordan's bestselling novels, which are set in a world where magic exists and only certain women are allowed to wield it.

The series will follow Moiraine Damodred (Pike) as a member of a powerful, all-female organisation 'Aes Sedal,' who goes on a journey across the world with five young people, one of whom she believes might be the reincarnation of a person prophesied to save or destroy humanity.

The official Twitter account for the Wheel of Time Writers' Room welcomed Pike to the series.

"Please welcome Rosamund Pike to the 'Wheel of Time' family. Say hello to Moiraine," the tweet shared on Wednesday read.

Rave Judkins serves as showrunner and will adapt Jordan's novels for the small screen.
