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.
