Saoirse Ronan, Sam Rockwell and David Oyelowo Join Searchlight’s London-Set Whodunit That Takes Place During The 1950s

Deadline reports that a new untitled period thriller is in development at the Disney owned Searchlight Pictures as three high-profile casting additions are announced. Director Tom George (This Country) is assembling a cast for his untitled murder mystery that includes Irish actress Saoirse Ronan (The French Dispatch), Sam Rockwell (Jojo Rabbit), and David Oyelowo (The Midnight Sky).

Here are plot and characters details of the film penned by Mark Chappell.

The story is set in 1950s London, where a desperate Hollywood film producer sets out to turn a popular West End play into a film. When members of the production are murdered, 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.

A production start isn’t mentioned but will seemingly be shot in United Kingdom.
