Winslet Ronan Team For Gods Helmers Next

Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan are set to team up for the romance-drama “Ammonite” which marks the next project from “God’s Own Country” writer/director Francis Lee.

Set in a UK coastal town in the 1820s, the drama will follow the unlikely romance between palaeontologist Mary Anning and a London woman of means to whom she must unexpectedly play nursemaid.

Iain Canning (“Widows”) and Emile Sherman (“Lion”) will produce the film alongside Fodhla Cronin O‚ÄôReilly (“Lady Macbeth”). Shooting begins in March.
