Saoirse Ronan is set to star in “On Chesil Beach” for Number 9 Films based on the 2007 novel by Booker Prize-winning novelist Ian McEwan whose novel “Atonement” led to the acclaimed film adaptation that launched Ronan’s career.
Set in the UK in 1962, the story sees a young and talented violinist named Florence (Ronan) dream of a career on a concert stage and the perfect life she will create with an earnest young history student.
We then follow the precise depiction of two young lovers in this touching story of how their unexpressed misunderstandings and fears shape the rest of their lives.
Elizabeth Karlsen and Stephen Woolley will produce. Dominic Cooke (“The Hollow Crown”) will direct and filming begins in the Fall.
