On Chesil Beach (2017)

Set in England in 1962, ON CHESIL BEACH is a touching tale of two young lovers Edward and Florence and how their unexpressed misunderstandings and fears shape the rest of their lives.

Ian McEwan has personally adapted the novel into a screenplay and Dominic Cooke (THE HOLLOW CROWN) is set to direct the project for Number 9. Saoirse Ronan and Billy Howle will star as Florence and Edward respectively.

The project has been developed in conjunction with BBC Films. Lionsgate has taken UK rights and principal photography is due to begin this October.

The Fyzz Facility is part-funding the production of ON CHESIL BEACH.
