Saoirse Ronan is set to star in The Outrun, the new film from The Unforgivable director Nora Fingscheidt.
Ronan, a four-time Oscar nominee, will play Rona, a woman fresh out of rehab who, after more than a decade away, returns to Scotland’s wild Orkney Islands and to the sheep farm of her childhood where she reconnects with the dramatic landscape where she grew up and begins to piece together her childhood, memories of which merge with more recent challenging events that have set her on the path to recovery. Fingscheidt and Liptrot have adapted the book for the screen.
The Outrun will be directed by acclaimed German filmmaker Nora Fingscheidt, who helmed Netflix’s 2021 drama The Unforgivable.
Fingscheidt and Liptrot have co-written the adaptation. The book has been translated to more than a dozen languages, and was a Sunday Times bestseller in the United Kingdom, where it sold over 110,000 copies. Ronan will next be seen in See How They Run for Searchlight Pictures, in which she stars alongside Sam Rockwell
