Emilia Clarke and Sam Claflin are set to join forces this summer for new romantic drama Me Before You.
Me Before You is a big screen adaptation of the novel of the same name by Jojo Moyes and sees Thea Sharrock in the director's chair. Moyes has adapted her own novel into a screenplay for the project.
Clarke and Claflin take on the central roles of Louisa Clark and Will Traynor and I am looking forward to seeing them in action. The brand new trailer for the film has been released and it looks like these two actors are going to have a great onscreen chemistry. Take a look:
Me Before You will mark the feature film directorial debut of Sharrock - she is best known for her television work with the likes of Call the Midwife and The Hollow Crown under her belt.
Me Before You sees her make the transition into feature film for the first time and it is always exciting when a feature film debut is on the horizon. Sharrock looks set to be one of the female filmmakers to keep an eye on over the next couple of years.
She has brought together a terrific cast list as Clarke and Claflin are joined by Jenna Coleman, Charles Dance, Janes McTeer, Brendan Coyle, Matthew Lewis, and Vanessa Kirby,
Oftentimes you find love where you least expect it. Sometimes it takes you where you never expected to go... Louisa "Lou" Clark (Clarke) lives in a quaint town in the English countryside. With no clear direction in her life, the quirky and creative 26-year-old goes from one job to the next in order to help her tight-knit family make ends meet. Her normally cheery outlook is put to the test, however, when she faces her newest career challenge.
Taking a job at the local "castle," she becomes caregiver and companion to Will Traynor (Claflin), a wealthy young banker who became wheelchair-bound in an accident two years prior, and whose whole world changed dramatically in the blink of an eye. No longer the adventurous soul he once was, the now cynical Will has all but given up. That is until Lou determines to show him that life is worth living. Embarking together on a series of adventures, both Lou and Will get more than they bargained for, and find their lives - and hearts - changing in ways neither one could have imagined.
Me Before You is released 3rd June.
