London-based sales company Celsius Entertainment has boarded sales to romantic drama Rosa [working tite], set to star Elena Anaya (The Skin I Live In) and Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, Sleeping Beauty).
Ray Lawrence (Jindabyne, Lantana) will direct Beatrix Christian’s (Jindabyne) script based on the book Here at the End of the World We Learn to Dance by Lloyd Jones.
The production team includes producers Barrie M Osborne (The Lord of the Rings), Andrew Mason (I, Frankenstein), Emma Slade (line producer, Tracker) and Dan Hennah (production designer, The Hobbit).
Rosa follows intertwining love stories across three generations and two continents as the eponymous young woman discovers a hidden bittersweet romance buried in her grandfather’s past in 1930’s Buenos Aires.
Simultaneously, Rosa struggles to find the balance between loving her down-to-earth husband Ivan and falling in love with a younger man.
Slated to shoot in April 2014, the film would mark acclaimed director Lawrence’s fourth feature after lauded Australian dramas Bliss, Lantana and Jindabyne.
The production is currently in discussions with male leads.
Sucker Punch star Browning will next be seen in Stuart Murdoch’s God Help the Girl and Paul W S Anderson’s action-adventure Pompeii.
Osborne was most recently an executive producer on The Great Gatsby. Mason is head of production at Australian-based Hopscotch Features.
Also on Celsius’ slate is Any Day Now starring Alan Cumming and Garrett Dillahunt, and John Boorman’s Queen and Country, which is currently in development.

Directed by Christopher Menaul with a screenplay written by Jonathan Smith based on his 1995 novel, Summer In February stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey), Dominic Cooper (The Devil’s Double), Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) and winner of the Evening Standard and the Critics’ Choice Theatre Awards for Best Actress for her performance in the Young Vic’s A Doll’s House; Harriet Morahan.
The film is the intimate, enchanting true story of young, vibrant souls navigating their way through love, passion and friendship in the picturesque landscape of early twentieth century England.
Summer In February focuses on the wild and bohemian Lamorna Group, dominated by the charismatic AJ Munnings (Dominic Cooper). The incendiary anti-Modernist Munnings, now regarded as one of Britain’s most sought-after artists, is at the heart of the complex love triangle, involving the young aspiring painter Florence Carter-Wood (Emily Browning) and Gilbert Evans (Dan Stevens), the land agent in charge of the Lamorna estate. Renowned painter Laura Knight is played by Hattie Morahan.
True – and deeply moving – the story is played out against the timeless beauty of the Cornish coast, in the far West of England, beyond the reach of London and its stifling conventions.
DVD Extras include: Interviews with director Christopher Menaul and David Evans (Gilbert’s son); exclusive interviews with stars Dominic Cooper, Emily Browning and author/screenwriter Jonathan Smith; Behind-the-scenes on-set montage with talking head interviews.
You can pre-order your copy now on Amazon UK.
