Hayley Atwell - likely best known for playing Peggy Carter in "Captain America: The First Avenger" (although she has done a ton of superb work for British TV) -- has now joined the flick alongside Hiddleston and things look pretty rosy for shooting to commence shortly. Set to be directed by Paul Andrew Williams ("London To Brighton," "Song For Marion") the film will chronicle the relationship between photographers Gerda Taro and Robert Capa, focusing on their years in Paris in the 1930s (is there anyone of note who wasn't in Paris in the '30s?) and culminating with the heartbreaking events during the Spanish Civil War that would drastically alter the course of both their lives.

Great subject matter, great source material and some solid talent coming together for this one, so we'll be very curious to see how it turns out. Production is expected to begin in June. [Screen Daily]
