Crowned Queen of Scotland when she was less than a year old, the 16th century leader was, later in life, forced to abdicate her throne and soon thereafter was executed at age 18 for her alleged involvement with an assassination attempt on the life of her cousin, Queen Elizabeth I (whose life story was told in Hirst’s screenplays for Elizabeth and Elizabeth: The Golden Age. In the latter film, Mary herself was played by Samantha Morton.

Originally scripted by Michael Hirst, Mary Queen of Scots will be directed by Josie Rourke. Working Title’s Tim Bevan, Eric Fellner and Liza Chasin are producing.

Meanwhile, the actress is set to star opposite Sebastian Stan in the Tonya Harding biopic I, Tonya, Sony’s Beatrix Potter adaption, Peter Rabbit and Marian, an upcoming Sony Pictures film based on the legend of Robin Hood.
