The Crown’s Emma Corrin & Harry Styles To Star In Romantic Drama ‘My Policeman̵
Based on the acclaimed novel of the same name by Bethan Roberts, My Policeman will be produced by Greg Berlanti, Robbie Rogers and Sarah Schechter of Berlanti-Schechter Films, in association with Cora Palfrey and Phillip Herd at Independent Film Company and MGC.
My Policeman is set in the ’50s and tells the story of married couple Tom and Marion, whose life is thrown into a spin when an elderly man named Patrick comes to stay with them. Tom and Patrick, it’s revealed, had a secret romance 40 years over, when same sex relationships were forbidden by law.
Corrin is best known for her role as Lady Diana Spencer in Season 4 of the award winning Netflix series The Crown, which earned her Golden Globe, SAG and Critics Choice nominations for Best Actress. Styles, who will next star in girlfriend Olivia Wilde‘s upcoming film Don’t Worry Darling, was first reported to be attached to the project in September 2020. At the time, Lily James was also slated to star alongside him as Marion.
