Our very own Saoirse Ronan is just about everywhere these days. With Oscar nominations and just about every other award on the go she’s part of it all.

Now she is set to take on another adaption of Ian McEwan’s “On Chesil Beach”. This is the second time Ronan will work with McEwan, the last time they worked together (Atonement) she was nominated for an Oscar.

According to The Guardian:

“The film will be directed by Dominic Cooke, whose previous credits have mainly been in the theatre, where he was artistic director of the Royal Court. A co-star has not yet been announced. It is being produced by Number 9 Films, who were the driving force behind Carol and Youth. Said producer Elizabeth Karlsen: ‘It’s an extremely exciting prospect to be reunited with Saoirse Ronan on such a beautiful and heartbreaking project’.”

The 2007  book, which was shortlisted for the Booker Prize, is set in the 60s and centres on a young couple honeymooning in Dorset.
