Saoirse Ronan Joins 1950-Set Murder Mystery

‘This Country’ director Tom George is set to take the helm for an untitled murder mystery thriller with Saoirse Ronan, Sam Rockwell and David Oyelowo attached to star.

Featuring a script by Mark Chappell, the story is “set in 1950s London, where a desperate Hollywood film producer sets out to turn a popular West End play into a film. When members of the production are murdered, world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Rockwell) and overzealous rookie Constable Stalker (Ronan) find themselves in the midst of a puzzling whodunit within London’s glamorous Theatreland and sordid underground.”

A production start date has yet to be set. Katie Goodson-Thomas, Head of Development & Production for Searchlight Pictures UK, will oversee for the studio along with Director of Production Richard Ruiz and Senior Development Executive Pete Spencer.
