Winslet is eying the lead in "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society," which Branagh is attached to direct. Winslet and Branagh first teamed up during the 1996 bigscreen production of "Hamlet."
Based on the bestseller by Mary Ann Shaffer, "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Pie Society" is an unusual pen-pal style love story set in the wake of WWI London.
The script was adapted by Don Roos ("The Other Woman") and imagines Winslet as a magazine columnist who begins a letter writing relationship with a man from Guernsey.
Shooting for "Guernsey" is scheduled to begin in March.
