Award-winning actresses Kate Winslet and Saoirse Ronan have been spotted on the set of lesbian period drama Ammonite.
Production for the movie inspired by the life of fossil hunter Mary Anning has taken over the coastal town of Lyme Regis in West Dorset, England.
The film follows ‘palaeontologist Anning and a London woman of means to whom she must unexpectedly play nursemaid’.
God’s Own Country director Frances Lee is behind the camera for the movie, set to be released later this year.
Lesbian actress Fiona Shaw also stars in an unknown role.

Principal photography began on 11 March and fans gathered on set to catch a glimpse of the two actresses.
