Saoirse Ronan To Play Mary Queen Of Scots
Michael Hirst (Elizabeth, The Tudors, Camelot) has penned the script, and the search has begun for a director.
Ronan was Oscar-nominated for her breakthrough role in Atonement at the age of 13. Since then, she has appeared in The Lovely Bones and Hanna, and is set to star in Neil Jordan’s Byzantium alongside Sam Riley. She also has parts lined up in Andrew Niccol’s The Host, Manuel Sicilia’s Justin and the Knights of Valour and Kevin Macdonald’s How I Live Now.
Production on Mary Queen Of Scots will get under way next year.
