Saoirse Ronan is set to star alongside a hugely talented cast and production team in a new movie set in 1950s London.
See How They Run tells the story of a murder amongst the crew members of a West End play, just as their production was set to be turned into a film.
Ronan stars as Constable Stalker who is sent to investigate and solve the grizzly crime with her colleague Inspector Stoppard, played by US movie star Sam Rockwell.
The supporting cast is made up of established stars of screen and stage with the likes of Reece Shearsmith, Adrien Brody, Sian Clifford and David Oyelowo.
See How They Run is being directed by BAFTA winner Tom George.
With such a star-studded team the movie is expected to be a big success. The blend of Hollywood stars such as Ronan and stars of British comedies like Shearsmith and Sian Clifford will bring an interesting chemistry to the screen.
Tom George won a BAFTA for directing the hit British comedy This Country, which found the comedy in the mundane lives of two young people living in rural England with little or no prospects.
This project is something very different but George is delighted to take on the challenge and described working with the cast as ‘like a dream’.
He added: “I’m so excited to bring this thrilling, smart, funny murder mystery to audiences”.
“Doing so with the company behind such brilliant ensemble films as ‘Jojo Rabbit,’ ‘Birdman’ and ‘The Grand Budapest Hotel’ has really been the perfect fit.”
Producers Katie Goodson-Thomas and DanTram Nguyen are also excited about project.
They said: “We have been enamored with Tom George and his work with the BBC for years. His knack for bringing stellar performances from an ensemble cast across multiple genres made him the perfect choice to lead the talented team of See How They Run.
“We are pleased to welcome several members of the Searchlight family back to the fold like Saoirse, Sam, Adrien and David for this entertaining whodunit.”
Filming has already begun with various London locations being used including the St. Martin’s Theatre in the heart of the West End.
The movie is expected to be ready for release in 2022 and fans of Saoirse Ronan will be keen to see her performance in a totally different type of role.
