Looks like the first clip for OCB came out! As always, her accent is pretty spot-on and you can definitely see the undertones of the relationship Florence has with her father.

Nice clip....I wonder what Mark thinks about her accent.  :D

I'm not sure it would or that Wright would even want to. This sounds like an established doctor suffering some kind of burnout.
Saoirse is just beyond Doogie Howser territory. Even Kiera doesn't sound like she would be a perfect fit. Maybe Amy Adams, but I know nothing about the book.

It looks like you were right, it went to Amy Adams! I'm about half-way through and I must say, it isn't anywhere near as good as "Gone Girl" or "Sharp Objects" by G. Flynn, which Amy is also doing the limited TV-adaptation for. It's much more The Girl on the Train-esque, but I can see the adaptation of this being way better.

Wow.  Terrific news all around Travis.  Great find.  I'm really encouraged that MQOS will be a real player come the end of the year.

I hope so! It seems like the footage shown was a (edit: first-look teaser) , so hopefully that means we will get it too in the next 2 or so months.

"What happens when you take two Oscar-nominated actresses and bring them together? You get one epic film. Saoirse Ronan attended this year’s Focus Features presentation at CinemaCon to reveal the first trailer for Mary Queen of Scots, with Saoirse taking on the title role. She stars alongside Margot Robbie, who is playing Queen Elizabeth I. The footage showcases Saoirse and Margot’s immense talent. They chew up every single scene they’re in. From the cinematography to the costumes, this is going to be a movie you’re going to remember. Also, there was a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it glimpse of Joe Alwyn’s character!"

So apparently a (teaser/clip?) was shown at CinemaCon for MQOS with a presentation done by Saoirse and Josie; here are some replies so far on twitter:

So it seems that Mary and Elizabeth will appear in scenes together.

It’s interesting that Saoirse said at Tribeca that the cast of The Seagull did a read through of the script about a year and a half before they shot it.  That would put the read through in early 2014 before she made S-P and Brooklyn.  So she may have signed up to The Seagull as early as 2013.  Anyway, it sounds like it was a project that she really wanted to do not just a filler when she had trouble getting interesting roles in her early twenties.

Saoirse did an interview recently about superstition, but it's hidden behind a paywall on the wallstreet journal. Is anyone subscribed to that site, able to post her bit of text here?

I don't have a subscription either, but I find if I just google the headline the whole article can sometimes be accessed without the paywall:

Saoirse Ronan

“I feel about superstition the way I feel about ghosts—I’m slightly terrified of the idea but I kind of want it to be real. So if I’m brave enough to walk under a ladder there is a small part of me that’s willing something to go wrong. It’s like believing in a type of magic. My father and I knew an Irish actor named Chris O’Neill. Without him, neither of us would be acting. Chris was the kind of guy who was incredibly well-read and smart. And he was superstitious. When anyone would mention the title of ‘the Scottish play,’ for example, he’d run outside the theater, turn around three times and then knock on the door to come back inside. I think a lot of actors did that. Superstitions give us a sense of security. It’s about taking any nerves or fear you might have and putting it into something you can control.”
