Saoirse Ronan, Sam Rockwell and David Oyelowo to star in murder mystery for Searchlight Pictures


Searchlight Pictures has set Saoirse Ronan (Ammonite), Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri) and David Oyelowo (Come Away) to star in an as-yet-untitled murder mystery film.

As revealed by Deadline, the film will take place in 1950s London where a desperate Hollywood producer sets out to adapt a hit West End stage play into a movie. However, when the production is hit by a spate of murders, “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.”

Tom George (This Country) is set to direct the film from a script by Mark Chappell (Flaked), while Damian Jones (Belle) is on board to produce.
