Saoirse’s upcoming film On Chesil Beach has been acquired by Bleecker Street! They are currently planning a 2018 release.

‘Dunkirk’ actor Billy Howle also stars in Dominic Cooke’s adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel, which recounts a honeymoon gone wrong.

Bleecker Street has acquired the U.S. rights to the newlywed drama On Chesil Beach, starring Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle.

The Brooklyn Oscar nominee and the Dunkirk actor, respectively, play a newlywed couple who remained virgins until their wedding night. Their honeymoon retreat along the English seaside in 1962 becomes a challenge as they find themselves ill-equipped to consummate their marriage.

Former Royal Court Theatre head Dominic Cooke directed the adaptation of Ian McEwan’s novel from the author’s script. Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley produced, with Joe Oppenheimer, Thorsten Schumacher, Zygi Kamasa, Beth Pattinson, Chiara Gelardin, Norman Merry, Peter Hampden and Ian McEwan serving as executive producers.

On Chesil Beach made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Bleecker Street, which also picked up the drama Disobedience out of Toronto, will wait until 2018 to release On Chesil Beach.

Focus Features has announced the release date of Mary, Queen of Scots! If all goes well, the film will premiere in the United States on November 2, 2018 in select theaters.

The biography drama MARY, QUEEN OF SCOTS will have a November 2 2018 limited release. From artistic director of The Donmar Warehouse comes the story of Mary Stuart. The film is based on John Guy’s novel My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots which was adapted by Beau Willimon (The Ides of March, House of Cards)

The film stars Saoirse Ronan as the charismatic Mary Stuart, who became Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18. Instead of remarrying, Mary returns to her native home of Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I (Margot Robbie). Determined to be more than a figurehead, Marry asserts her claim to the throne against Elizabeth I. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies arise as they change the course of history.

Also starring is Guy Pearce, David Tennant, and Jack Lowden while Tim Bevan, Eric Felner and Debra Hayward produce.

Lady Bird continues to slay its way through film festivals! It has been announced it will be opening the Austin Film Festival, which runs from October 26 to November 2, 2017. It will hit theaters in the United States on November 10. This information comes from Variety.

The Austin Film Festival has selected A24’s “Lady Bird,” starring Saoirse Ronan, as its opening night film on Oct. 26.

“Lady Bird,” directed by Greta Gerwig in her feature debut, premiered on Sept. 3 at the Telluride Film Festival, then showed on opening night at the Toronto Film Festival. Gerwig has been confirmed to attend the Austin screening.

The film focuses on the edgy relationship between Ronan’s brash high schooler and her mother, played by Laurie Metcalf. The comedy-drama, set in 2002 in Sacramento, Calif., also stars Tracy Letts in the father role and Lucas Hedges and Timothee Chalamet as the romantic interests. A24 opens “Lady Bird” on Nov. 10.

Peter Debruge of Variety gave the film a strong review: “The real surprise is just how honest and personal this film proves to be — again, par for the course with Gerwig, and yet, fairly rare among first-time directors, who haven’t had nearly so much practice simply being real.”

The festival also announced Wednesday that it has chosen the Weinstein Company’s “The Current War” as its centerpiece film. Director Alfonso Gomez-Rejon will present the film, which chronicles the race for marketable electricity in the United States between Thomas Edison (played by Benedict Cumberbatch) and George Westinghouse (Michael Shannon).

The film, which premiered Sept. 9 in Toronto, also stars Tom Holland, Nicholas Hoult, and Katherine Waterston.
The Austin festival’s lineup also includes “An Ordinary Man,” starring Ben Kingsley; “24 Hours to Live,” starring Ethan Hawke; “Please Stand By,” starring Dakota Fanning and Toni Collette; and the premiere of the season finale of HBO’s new dramatic series “The Deuce” with creators David Simon and George Pelecanos in attendance.
