Thank you Deadline!

EXCLUSIVE: Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan are to star in romance-drama Ammonite from God’s Own Country writer-director Francis Lee.

Widows and Lion producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman will produce the film alongside Fodhla Cronin O’Reilly (Lady Macbeth). Pic was developed with the BFI and BBC Films.

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. Production is due to start in March 2019.

Lee’s Sundance darling God’s Own Country, about the homosexual romance between two young farmhands, was a critical hit and a box office breakout in the UK. The festival favourite picked up a slew of awards and was also BAFTA-nominated.
