First look at Irish actress Saoirse Ronan as Mary Queen of Scots

The first look pic of Saoirse Ronan as Mary, Queen of Scots is here - and she looks so much different than Adelaide Kane's version in Reign! Josie Rourke is making her directorial debut with the movie.

Oscar nominee Beau Willimon (The Ides of March) adapted John Guy's biography My Heart is My Own: The Life of Mary Queen of Scots for the screen. It really does feel like we're on the cusp of seeing far more representation behind the camera, especially in the wake of Wonder Woman, and Mary, Queen of Scots is one to keep an eye on.

The movie explores the turbulent life of Mary Stuart - Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18 - who defies pressure to remarry and returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her throne.

Other members of the cast include David Tennant, Guy Pearce, Jack Lowden, Joe Alwyn, Martin Compston, and Brendan Coyle.

Mary famously became queen of Scotland when she was just six days old, and subsequently dealt with all manner of murders, disastrous marriages, and political conspiracies.

Saoirse earned Academy Award nominations for Focus and Working Title's Atonement and for Brooklyn. Pearce was last seen in Alien: Covenant and will soon appear in The Catcher Was a Spy with Paul Rudd. Tannant is best known for starring in Doctor Who and Broadchurch, and also played the villain Kilgrave in Jessica Jones.
