Director Thea Sharrock

The big-screen adaptation of Jojo Moyes' best-selling novel Me Before You has found a new studio and a release date. 

Acclaimed theater and TV director Thea Sharrock's feature directing debut will be co-produced by New Line and MGM and released on the summer counter-programming date of August 21, 2015. 

Me Before You explores the friendship between Will, a former high-flying exec now bound to a wheelchair after a catastrophic accident, and Lou, a twenty-something woman from the English countryside who's hired as his caretaker. Their relationship takes a turn when Lou discovers that Will plans to commit suicide. 

Sharrock has previously directed episodes of the BBC miniseries The Hollow Crown and the series Call the Midwife. Her theater credits include EquusThe Sunshine BoysThe Misanthrope, and the Olivier Award-winning revival of After the Dance

In 2001, a 24-year-old Sharrock became the youngest artistic director of a theater company  when she ran London's Southwark Playhouse.
