11 Oct – Oscar-nominated Felicity Jones and Golden Globes-nominated Shailene Woodley will be seen starring alongside each other in the upcoming "The Last Letter from Your Lover".

The movie, a dual-narrative love story set between London and the Riviera, is an adaptation of author Jojo Moyes' best-selling novel of the same name, as reported by Deadline.

It follows Jones' character, Ellie, a young female journalist in London, who uncovers a series of love letters in the archives that reveals an intensely romantic but star-crossed affair in the 1960s between Jennifer Stirling (Woodley) and Anthony O'Hare (Callum Turner).


Ellie soon becomes obsessed with not only discovering the lovers' identities but also finding out how their love story ends.

Aside from starring, Jones and Woodley will both be serving as executive producers, as well.

Joining the two as part of the cast, apart from the aforementioned Turner ("Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald"), are Joe Alwyn ("Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk"), Ncuti Gatwa ("Sex Education") and Nabhaan Rizwan ("Informer").

Augustine Frizzell is directing "The Last Letter from Your Lover", which is set to begin production in the Spanish island Mallorca next Monday before moving to the UK.
