First Image Of Saoirse Ronan In WW3 Drama ‘How I Live Now’

(Written for HeyUGuys)

This week we have the new image for the latest feature effort from Kevin Macdonald, How I Live Now.

Adapted from Meg Rosoff‘s award-winning young adult novel of the same name that was first published in 2004, the film follows Diasy (Saoirse Ronan), a New Yorker staying with English cousins when World War III breaks out. As the country becomes occupied, she falls for her cousin, Edmond, and has to protect her younger cousin Piper from the invading troops.

Rosoff’s original novel won three notable awards including the Michael L. Printz Award, so director Kevin Macdonald, known for his documentaries Life In A Day and Marley, has a good source to work from, and Ronan is certainly making a name for herself in such serious dramas.

MacDonald also told Indie Wire earlier this year that Ronan will be the only major name in the cast:

…it’s quite a dark, little film. It was designed, financially, to be with no name actors at all. [Ronan] so wanted to do it and I met her, she was so fantastic, and so right in age. Everybody else in this will be unknown, never having acted before. It’s all kids. Two or three adult scenes, but all the main characters are kids.

While it was rumoured that Ronan was going to be a part of the ever-growing cast for Darren Aronofsky’s upcoming Biblical re-telling Noah, it’s likely that this isn’t going to happen anymore due to the conflict for How I Live Now, which is currently being filmed and set to be released sometime next year.
