Game of Thrones star, Richard Madden is apparently all set to join previously announced Rebecca Hall in an upcoming Patrice Leconte‘s period piece titled A Promise. I’m not so excited about the whole thing, simply because we have a story that is set during pre-World War I Germany, but I like the cast, so what the hell, I’ll give them a try.
A Promise will follow Madden as young engineer who goes to work for a wealthy older man and ends up falling for the benefactor’s wife, played by Hall. The war forces them to part and the relationship is put on hold until the two meet nine years later.
See, this story already sounds too familiar…
Director Leconte wrote a script together with Jerome Tonnerre, and Olivier Delbosc and Marc Missonnier will produce through Fidelite Films.
Production is set to start at the end of the year.
