Captain America: The First Avenger star Hayley Atwell has joined the cast of the upcoming drama I, Anna for director Barnaby Southcombe.

The actress will reunite with Charlotte Rampling, who portrays the title character Anna. The actresses both starred in The Duchess together. I, Anna will revolve around Charlotte Rampling's character, whose life is turned upside down after a bad first date, with a policeman trying to track her down after the date went awry. Hayley Atwell will play Anna's daughter, Emmy.

Barnaby Southcombe will make his feature directorial debut, working from a script he adapted from the Elsa Lewin novel of the same name. Eddie Marsan, Jodhi May, Bill Milner, and Honor Blackman also co-star.

Production is currently under way in London.
