February 17th, 2016   Saoirse Ronan Fan No Comments

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.”
