Olivia Colman and Woody Harrelson are set to star in Girl From the North Country, adapted from the Tony Award-winning Broadway show of the same name inspired by the songs of Bob Dylan.

Based on the Tony-winning show inspired by the music of Bob Dylan and with its playwright Conor McPherson set write and direct, the feature will star Olivia Colman, Woody Harrelson , plus Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter/musician Chl÷e Bailey, and rising British actor Tosin Cole.

The original Broadway show reimagines 20 legendary Bob Dylan songs including "Forever Young", "All Along the Watchtower", "Hurricane", "Slow Train Coming", "Make You Feel My Love" and "Like a Rolling Stone".
