Guernsey, the film, is in pre-production – reports

News | Published:

GUERNSEY, the film, looks set to start shooting this spring.

Online reports say that it has left the development stage and entered pre-production.

The film of The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society has been in the pipeline since rights to the book were bought in 2008.

Directing will be Mike Newell, who previously helmed Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Actress Kate Winslett's name had been attached to the lead role of Juliet Ashton at one point but, after she dropped out, the part was taken on by Downton Abbey star Lily James.

Opposite her will be Michiel Huisman as shy Guernsey pig farmer Dawsey Adams.
