Kristin Scott Thomas will mark her directorial debut with the romantic drama and also star.

Anya Taylor-Joy (Split, The Witch) is in talks to join The Sea Change, a romantic drama that will mark the directorial debut of Kristin Scott Thomas.

Thomas also will star in the film, which is adapted from Elizabeth Jane Howard’s critically acclaimed novel. Mark Strong is also in talks to star. Rebecca Lenkiewicz adapted the novel for the screen, and Barnaby Thompson will produce for Fragile Films. Principal photography is scheduled to begin later this year in the U.K. and Europe.

Rocket Science is handling world sales and introduced the film to buyers in Berlin this week.

Taylor-Joy is currently starring in M. Night Shyamalan’s Split and Thoroughbred for Focus Features. She next appears in the Sergio G. Sanchez-directed thriller Marrowbone.
