You may recall that over a year ago it was announced that Saoirse was going to star in “Mary Queen Of Scots”, and then not much else was heard. Well it looks like it has found a helmer in Susanne Bier.

The director is in talks to direct the flick, with Penelope Skinner (“How I Live Now”) working on the script with the previously announced Michael Hirst (“Elizabeth”). Ronan will obviously take the juicy leading part, the queen of Scotland, who married a first cousin, who wound up being murdered, then hooked up with the guy accused of setting up the killing, leading to an an uprising and imprisonment in Loch Leven Castle. Mary also attempted to assassinate Queen Elizabeth, leading to her execution. So, definitely lots to dive into for director and star alike.

No word yet on when this might shoot, but the wheels seem to be turning once again on this one, so we’ll keep an ear and eye out.
