'The Crown' actress will appear in a new police drama exploring sexuality in the 1950s.
Emma Corrin, known as Lady Di off The Crown, has been tapped to star in a new Amazon adaptation of Bethan Roberts novel My Policeman.
She will appear as Marion, a former school-teacher and wife to ex-policeman Tom (Harry Styles) in the drama directed by Michael Grandage. Exploring the love triangle between the couple and Tom’s former lover Patrick, My Policeman delves into themes such as prejudice, betrayal and social expectations. Written by Oscar nominee and low-key gay icon Ron Nyswaner we’re hoping that the film, which jumps between the 1950s and 2000s, will also provide commentary on recent queer history.
Shooting for the film doesn’t’ begin until April but with Harry and Emma at the helm, My Policeman is sure to get bums on seats when it’s finally released. While the duo’s star power is undeniable, they’ve also got some serious acting chops: Emma recently received a Golden Globe nod for her turn in The Crown and Harry’s creds include Dunkirk and Olivia Wilde’s forthcoming film Don’t Worry Darling.
