Ther (/Her) new project will be being worked on soon (by her).
 
However this sentence sounds not really natural.

I ´m sorry, I don ´t think the Passive exists in the future continuous form. Must be replaced by future simple.
The project will be worked on.
Otherwise it sounds unnatural.

You might have been taught that the future continuous passive doesn ´t exist, but it definitely does. However, it is only used in specific situations in which the ongoing nature of the action needs to be emphasized. The "soon" in this example makes this form very awkward and unnatural as both Maryse and you said.
 
However, " The new project will be being worked on the whole morning" is fine.
