EXCLUSIVE: Working Title has attached Saoirse Ronan to play the title role in Mary Queen Of Scots, a Michael Hirst-scripted period drama. Working Title partners Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner are already talking to directors, and aim to begin production next year.

Crowned the queen of Scotland before she was a year old, Mary added to that pedigree when her first husband became France’s king and she became queen consort in 1559. Despite that auspicious start, things didn’t go well from there. She later married her first cousin, a bad match that ended with his murder. When she quickly married the man suspected of orchestrating the killing, an uprising against the couple resulted in her imprisoned in Loch Leven Castle. Forced to abdicate her throne to her year-old son, she failed in an attempt to wrest back the throne and fled for the protection of her cousin, England’s Queen Elizabeth 1. If you’ve seen Elizabeth or any movie about that period, you know how well that worked out for Mary, who’d once claimed to be the rightful queen of England, a view embraced by Catholics. Once she was perceived as a threat by her cousin, Mary was confined and ultimately executed for complicity in a plot to assassinate Elizabeth.

It's not the best source so I'm taking this with a grain of salt but apparently the budget is £180M (!!!).

More people joining. One of them is apparently Taylor Swift's boyfriend.

To put that number in perspective, that's around $230M in US dollars. That's the same production budget as Dark Knight Rises and Pirates 5. Just...how?

 

Anyway, the power of Saoirse Ronan's presence will likely compel me to see this anyway, even if it's utter trash.
