Saoirse Ronan has joined the cast for AppleTV & Steve McQueen’s World War II epic feature ‘Blitz.’
The feature tells the stories of a group of Londoners during the aerial bombing of the British capital during the war.
Details of the role Ronan will undertake are yet to be revealed.
McQueen will pen the project alongside directing and producing the film. McQueen’s production banner Lammas Park is producing alongside Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner of Working Title Films, and Arnon Milchan, Yariv Milchan and Michael Schaefer from New Regency, with independent producer Anita Overland.
‘Blitz’ marks a reunion for McQueen and New Regency, who previously partnered on Oscar-winning “12 Years a Slave” and “Widows.” The new film is based on an original idea from McQueen and was developed through the director’s multi-year overall deal with New Regency, signed in 2017.
Ronan was last seen in ‘See How They Run’ alongside Sam Rockwell. She also stars in the forthcoming Garth Davies feature ‘Foe’ alongside Paul Mescal.
