Mad Men actress Christina Hendricks will be the star of upcoming WWI drama The Angel Makers.
The 40 year-old American will be joined by two-time Academy Award nominee Emily Watson (Hilary and Jackie; Breaking the Waves) in the romantic drama that centres on the lives of two women in the North Yorkshire Moors (UK) who are left to maintain their farms while their husbands are away at war. The movie is based on the true story of two women who started affairs with German POW’s towards the end of the first World War.
Hendricks and Watson join Abbie Cornish, David Kross and Max Riemelt on the movie that is set to be directed by Entrapment (1999) director Jon Amiel.
No release date has yet been announced as Arclight Films are still searching for a distributor.
