Last year, Harry Styles was revealed as the upcoming star of the LGBTQ+ romantic drama My Policeman, an adaptation of Bethan Roberts’ 2012 novel of the same name. Now, it’s been announced that Emma Corrin will star alongside the musician and actor.
Earlier this week, Corrin earned a Golden Globe nomination for her depiction of Princess Diana (now set to be portrayed by Kristen Stewart) in the Netflix historical drama The Crown. In Amazon’s My Policeman, she will play Marion, Deadline reports, taking the lead female role that was originally rumoured to be filled by Lily James.
The queer love story will revolve around Marion, a schoolteacher, and her relationship with Tom, a policeman (played by Styles). The arrival of an elderly man named Patrick “triggers the exploration of seismic events from 40 years previous” – namely, Tom and Patrick’s relationship at a time when homosexuality was illegal. Taking inspiration from the setting of the original novel (1950s Brighton), the film is set to pick up in the late 1990s.
