Production Weekly is reporting that Saoirse Ronan is set to play the title role in Effie, based on a script by Emma Thompson and husband Greg Wise.

Orlando Bloom, Greg Wise, Imelda Staunton and Emma Thompson will also star in the project.

Effie is based on Effie Gray, the wife of English art critic John Ruskin, who became entangled in a famous Victorian love triangle. Without consummating the relationship, Effie Gray left her husband, had the marriage annulled, and married John Ruskin's protégé John Everett Millais.

No production date has been set.
