Winslet And Branagh To Reunite

Kate Winslet is set to star in romance, THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL SOCIETY, which will be directed by Kenneth Branagh.

The pair haven’t worked together since Winslet played Ophelia in his big hit HAMLET (1996).

The film is a love story set in the London and the Channel Islands after WWII. Winslet will play a magazine columnist who enters into a correspondence with a man from Guernsey, and learns how the islanders used a book group during the war as cover to outwit their German occupiers.

Captivated by their stories of the occupation, and how the books came to influence their lives, she decides to travel to Guernsey herself, a journey that changes her forever.

In a recent interview with Variety, Branagh described the project as “a beautiful romance, very touching and uplifting.”

THE GUERNSEY LITERARY AND POTATO PEEL SOCIETY is adapted by Don Roos from the best seller by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

It is being produced by Paula Masur and Mitchell Kaplan and Shooting is scheduled for March.
