British actors Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan are starring in an upcoming period drama where they’ll play ‘unlikely’ lovers.

The movie, Ammonite, is based on the life of fossil hunter Mary Anning. It’s a romance directed by Francis Lee, who previously out the queer romantic-drama God’s Own Country.

Taking place in an English coastal town in the 1840s, the movie follows ‘palaeontologist Mary Anning and a London woman of means to whom she must unexpectedly play nursemaid’, according to Deadline.

It is not clear which actor will be playing which role.

Both actors, however, are critically acclaimed and highly celebrated. Winslet has been nominated seven times for an Oscar, and won once (in 2009 for The Reader).

Ronan, meanwhile, at 24, has been nominated for three Oscars. Her most recent nod was this year for his leading role in Greta Gerwig’s Lady Bird. She currently stars alongside fellow Oscar nominee Margot Robbie in Mary Queen of Scots.

God’s Own Country won Lee the World Cinema Dramatic Special Jury Award for Directing at Sundance in 2017. It also won the prize for best film at the British Independent Film Awards.
