Hayley Atwell to Star in I, Anna


Captain America: The First Avenger co-star Hayley Atwell will reteam with Charlotte Rampling for I, Anna, the feature directorial debut of writer/director Barnaby Southcombe, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Atwell will play Emmy, daughter of Rampling’s eponymous character, Anna, in the London-set suspense thriller from Bavaria Film International.

The trade says the movie is “the story of a woman’s life being turned upside down after a date gone wrong, and the impossible love of the policeman tracking her down.”

Eddie Marsan, Jodhi May, Bill Milner and Honor Blackman will co-star. Southcombe’s script is based on the novel of the same name by Elsa Lewin.

Atwell and Rampling previously starred together in The Duchess with Keira Knightley and Ralph Fiennes.
