“I’m away to America,” Saoirse Ronan tells us, hiding her character’s nervousness behind a wall of sheer moxie in Brooklyn, the most stirring film of 2015. Don’t fight us on this one: You’ve either already seen it and rocked a smile-cry for two hours, or you’re going to (and you’re in for a treat). A wrenchingly beautiful Irish immigrant drama, Brooklyn does double duty, re-creating the 1950s-era borough in all its melting-pot diversity (and Dodgers-loving Italian boyfriends), while also giving the 21-year-old Ronan the kind of role—romantically conflicted, blooming, courageously open—that transforms young stars into icons.

Ronan, who was born in the Bronx to Irish parents and moved to the Emerald Isle when she was three years old, can’t really be compared to her peers—even the exceptional ones. She steals busy movies, like The Grand Budapest Hotel, with her classical, silent-era stillness. She possesses a lilting brogue that can win over even the most cynical cinephile. And with her Oscar nomination for Brooklyn—her second, the first being for a dazzling run, at age 13, in 2007’s Atonement—Ronan is the second-youngest performer in all of movie history who can call herself a two-time competitive veteran of Hollywood’s biggest night.

Now the actor wants to change things up. “One of the things I am very conscious of is doing something different every time,” she tells me in a corner booth of Alphabet City’s Ace Bar, where she’s just played pool and darts like an after-work regular. In late March, the actor takes on Broadway with the tricky role of Abigail, the vengeful Salemite of Arthur Miller’s The Crucible, under the direction of high-concept theater heavyweight Ivo van Hove (A View from the Bridge, Scenes from a Marriage). There’s also her upcoming leading role in Lady Bird, the first feature directed by indie It girl Greta Gerwig—a film in which we can only hope Ronan becomes an eccentric new cousin to Gerwig’s Frances Ha character.

Saoirse has a new project! She is set to star in ‘On Chesil Beach’, based on the 2007 tome by Booker Prize-winning novelist Ian McEwan – who also wrote the novel ‘Atonement’, the film adaptation that resulted in Saoirse’s first Oscar nomination. The news come from Variety.

Saoirse Ronan is set to topline “On Chesil Beach,” based on the 2007 tome by Booker Prize-winning novelist Ian McEwan.

Pic is produced by Number 9 Films’ Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley, the team behind Oscar-nominated “Carol” and “Youth.”

Dominic Cooke, who has recently helmed TV mini-series “The Hollow Crown” starring Tom Hiddleston, will direct the project. It is skedded to lense in Autumn this year.

Ronan, who is also up for best actress at this year’s Academy Awards for her role in 1950s-set Irish immigrant story “Brooklyn,” will play the lead role of Florence in “Chesil Beach.”

The story is set in Blighty in 1962 and sees a young and talented violinist (Florence) dream of a career on a concert stage and the perfect life she will create with an earnest young history student (Edward). It follows the precise depiction of two young lovers to the touching story of how their unexpressed misunderstandings and fears shape the rest of their lives.

Project marks the second time Ronan has been cast in a pic based on a McEwan tome: The thesp played alongside James McAvoy and Keira Knightley in 2007’s “Atonement,” directed by Joe Wright. The thesp will also reunite with Number 9 Films after they worked together on vampire pic “Byzantium.”

Number 9 Films has a rep for producing high-quality and prestigious adaptations. In addition to producing “Carol” alongside Christine Vachon’s Killer Films (which has received six Oscar nods this year), the shingle has just finished lensing “The Limehouse Golem,” based on the tome by Peter Ackroyd, 2012’s “Great Expecations,”directed by Mike Newell and an adaptation of Salman Rushdie’s “Midnight’s Children.”
