Studiocanal has unveiled the first-look at Academy Award®-nominee Saoirse Ronan in director Nora Fingscheidt’s highly anticipated adaptation of Amy Liptrot’s best-selling memoir, The Outrun.

Adapted by multi award-winning director Fingscheidt (System Crasher), in collaboration with Liptrot, the film is led by four-time Oscar® nominee Saoirse Ronan (Little Women) who stars as Rona, a young woman fresh out of rehab that returns to the wild Orkney Islands after more than a decade away. 

As she reconnects with the dramatic landscape where she grew up, memories of her childhood merge with the more recent challenging events that have set her on the path to recovery. The film also stars Emmy nominee Paapa Essiedu (I May Destroy You) and BAFTA winner Stephen Dillane (Alex Rider). 

The Outrun was optioned by Brock Media’s Sarah Brocklehurst, who is developing and producing alongside Ronan, Jack Lowden, and Dominic Norris under their recently founded banner, Arcade Pictures. They are joined by co-producers Jonas Weydemann and Jakob D. Weydemann of Weydemann Bros. 

Protagonist Pictures is handling worldwide sales and executive producing, with Luane Gauer, George Hamilton, James Pugh, and Janina Vilsmaier serving as executive producers alongside Claudia Yusef for BBC Film, Kieran Hannigan for Screen Scotland, and Maria Logan and Anne Sheehan for MBK.

BBC Film and Screen Scotland supported development of the project and are funding production alongside MBK Productions. Funding is also provided by FFA, Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg, MOIN Film Fund Hamburg Schleswig-Holstein, and Film and Medienstiftung NRW. 

Liptrot’s memoir of the same name won the 2016 Wainwright Prize and the 2017 PEN Ackerley Prize and was a Sunday Times Top Ten Bestseller. The book was translated into 15 languages, selling over 110,000 copies in the UK alone, and was added by publisher Canongate to its modern classics list, The Canons. 

The Outrun will be released in Irish cinemas in 2023.
