Are you a fan of love triangles and forbidden love stories? Well, it’s time to get excited. Last week Amazon Studios sparked much excitement online with the release of first look images of the upcoming film My Policeman AND an official release date, with an official teaser published yesterday.
Harry Styles made his acting debut in Dunkirk (2017), and has since appeared in the Marvel Cinematic Universe and later this year he will share a screen with Florence Pugh and Olivia Wilde in Don’t Worry Darling. My Policeman will be Harry’s first leading role and fans are excited to see what he will bring to it. Harry will play the titular policeman, Tom Burgess. Our frequent readers will know, we are obsessed with The Crown’s Emma Corrin at DIVA HQ, and we can’t wait to see what they will bring to the role of Harry’s onscreen wife, Marion. Peaky Blinders’ David Dawson plays museum creator Patrick, whom Tom has an affair with.
Whilst the teaser doesn’t give too much away, it is full of romance and plenty of drama.
The film is adapted from the novel by Bethan Roberts and will explore an emotional tale of forbidden love and challenging social conventions. It will follow the three main characters as they navigate life in 1950s Brighton and will flash forward to 1990s with Linus Roache taking on the role of Tom, Gina McKee as Marion and Rupert Everett as Patrick. Their older selves are still reeling with longing and regret and are given one last chance to repair the wounds of the past.
Amazon Studios will distribute My Policeman in US and UK theatres on 21 October 2022 and globally on Prime Video on 4 November 2022.
