Saoirse Ronan To Star In THE OUTRUN Memoir Adaptation

Saoirse Ronan To Star In THE OUTRUN Memoir Adaptation

Four-time Oscar nominee Saoirse Ronan ("Lady Bird") has signed on to star in and executive produce the adaptation of Amy Liptrot's best-selling memoir "The Outrun". The film will be directed by Nora Fingscheidt ("The Unforgivable"), from a script she co-wrote with Liptrot.

Ronan will play Rona, a woman fresh out of rehab who, after more than a decade away, returns to Scotland's wild Orkney Islands and to the sheep farm of her childhood. As she reconnects with the dramatic landscape where she grew up, memories of her childhood merge with the more recent challenging events that have set her on the path to recovery.

Protagonist Pictures is handling worldwide sales and will introduce at the European Film Market, co-repping North American sales with CAA Media Finance. "The Outrun" was optioned and has been developed by Sarah Brocklehurst's Brock Media, which will produce the feature alongside Ronan, Jack Lowden and Dominic Norris under their recently founded banner, Arcade Pictures, and with Mogambo's Ignacio Salazar-Simpson and Ricardo Marco.

Ronan can next be seen in the murder mystery "See How They Run" from Searchlight Pictures, in which she stars alongside Sam Rockwell.
