SAOIRSE RONAN AND JOHN CROWLEY FOR BROOKLYN


Colm Toibin's novel Brooklyn is about an Irish woman who emigrates to the US in the 1950s having failing to find a living in her homeland. John Crowley, whose Closed Circuit recently attracted a middling response from critics (and far worse from American audiences) will direct Nick Hornby's adaptation, and Saoirse Ronan will star in the lead role. Rooney Mara was once attached in the role, though that was some time ago. It'll film next year.
