Variety reports that joining that impressive quintet for the feature length directorial debut of This Country‘s Tom George will be Harris Dickinson, Sian Clifford, Jacob Fortune-Lloyd, Shirley Henderson, Reece Shearsmith , Paul Chahidi, Pearl Chanda, Charlie Cooper and Pippa Bennett-Warner.

See How They Run is set in the West End of 1950s London, where plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theatre underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.

As well as the first look image and synopsis, the studio also released a character list, which you can check out below:

  • Rockwell’s Inspector Stoppard, a seasoned official who thinks he’s seen it all… until now.
  • Ronan’s Constable Stalker, the indefatigably ambitious rookie on the case.
  • Oyelowo’s Mervyn Cocker-Norris, celebrated writer, charged with adapting the successful stage play into a film.
  • Brody’s Leo Köpernick, an unscrupulous film director with a flair for drama.
  • Wilson’s Petula Spencer, a West End theatre impresario eager for her starring role.
  • Shearsmith’s John Woolf, the esteemed film producer looking to shoot magic adapting a popular stage play to film.
  • Clifford’s Edana Romney is John Woolf’s wife.
  • Henderson’s Dame is known to all by name alone.
  • Cooper’s Dennis the Usher, who witnesses more than a curtain call.
  • Fortune-Lloyd’s Gio is the inscrutably handsome taxidermist hiding a secret lover.
  • Chahidi’s Fellowes is a butler working for the Dame.
  • Chanda’s Sheila Sim, a celebrated actress from the play hoping to make the leap to film.
  • Dickinson’s Dickie Attenborough is Sheila’s suspicious husband.
  • Bennett-Warner’s Ann Saville is Woolf’s assistant and mistress.
