Kate Winslet is attached to star in The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society, which Kenneth Branagh is set to direct for Fox 2000.
This reunites Winslet with Branagh for the first time since she played Ophelia in his bigscreen Hamlet in 1996.

The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society is adapted by Don Roos from the bestseller by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows.

It’s a love story set in the London and the Channel Islands after WWII. Winslet will play a magazine columnist who enters into a correspondence with a man from Guernsey, and learns how the islanders used a book group during the war as cover to outwit their German occupiers.

Captivated by their stories of the occupation, and how the books came to influence their lives, she decides to travel to Guernsey herself, a journey that changes her forever.

In a recent interview with Variety, Branagh described the project as “a beautiful romance, very touching and uplifting.”

The project is being produced by Paula Masur and Mitchell Kaplan, with Branagh’s regular partner David Barron. Shooting is scheduled for March, according to the Daily Mail.

The book was first published in the U.S. in 2008. It was the first and only novel by Mary Ann Shaffer, an editor and librarian, whose niece Annie Burrows helped her finish it when Shaffer became terminally ill. Shaffer died aged 74 a few months before the novel was published.

The Titanic star landed her big break in the movie and she chronicled her time on the set with co-stars Emma Thompson and Alan Rickman in a diary.

Rickman tells the New York Times, “Kate wrote a book about the film and there are some quotes in there about Ang’s occasionally lose grasp of English. We’d get notes that left you kind of staring.

“I remember he said to Emma once, ‘Emma, try not to look so old’. That was a little shattering for her but she knew to translate that as ‘don’t be so knowing’. Mine was, ‘Alan, be more subtle, do more’, which we worked out that he meant do more of the subtle stuff.”

But Winslet had it harder than most on the set. Her co-star recalls, “Kate was only 19 at the time and he said, ‘Kate, never mind, you’ll get better’.”

Kate Winslet loves red polish on her toenails.

The Titanic actress says she doesn’t really get time to pamper her feet but thinks putting on a bright red shade can help them look in better condition than they are.

She said: “There’s nothing like red polish on toes. I don’t have much time for pedicures, but if I haven’t done anything to my feet for months and I look like a Neanderthal woman, a coat of red means you can somehow get away with anything.”

As well as brightening up her toes, Kate also has tips for making eyes look better.

She advised: “A great trick I’ve learnt with mascara is to put it on the back of your hand and York it into the tips of a flat stipple brush. Lift up your eyelid ever so slightly and paint a line on the underside of the roots, extremely close to the lashes and then go over the lashes with mascara. It doesn’t show as much as a liner, but can really define the eye. It also makes the whites of your eyes look whiter.”
