Saoirse Talks To Collider

Collider published an interview with Saoirse this week. She talks about Lady Bird and Mary Queen of Scots. Read it below:

Collider: This is such a great film, with such heart to it. Did you immediately get that from reading it?

SAOIRSE RONAN: Yeah! It was a very well-rounded script, in terms of the story and the characters, from the very first time that I read it. Actually, the draft that I read, initially, wasn’t far off from what we ended up shooting with, anyway. Nothing really changed. It was really nice to have that. Even then, we knew we were making something very special to us, but with a film that small and one that has a female lead who’s younger, that doesn’t necessarily mean that it’s going to be a success, commercially. So, the fact that that’s happening is amazing. It’s really exciting, actually, for myself and (writer/director) Greta [Gerwig]. It really feels like a girl power moment to have a film like this actually reach a wider audience. And not just the gender, just a film being so intimate is not necessarily seen as profitable. It’s great that that whole idea is starting to change now.

Focus Features Sets “Mary, Queen of Scots” Release Date

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.
