The romantic drama centers on the women of England’s Yorkshire Moors, who were left to maintain the farms when their men headed off to fight in France in 1917.

Mad Men star Christina Hendricks and two-time Oscar nominee Emily Watson will star in The Angel Makers, a WWI romantic drama that will be directed by English filmmaker Jon Amiel.

Abbie Cornish (Limitless), Max Riemelt (Sense8) and David Kross (The Reader) have also joined the film, which is slated to begin production in January.

The film, based on true events, centers on the women of England’s Yorkshire Moors, who were left to maintain the farms when their men headed off to fight in France in 1917. When the women enlist German POWs from a nearby internment camp to do labor on their land, affairs soon begin to bloom.

Six-time Emmy nominated actress Hendricks will play the leader of the women, whose skills as a midwife and witch doctor are needed to mix the potions that can save a life, or take it away.

Arclight Films will present the project to buyers at TIFF and is handling worldwide sales. “We have all of the elements of a major commercial success in place; an award-winning and visionary director, a team of powerful producers, an extremely talented, world-renown cast and a captivating, well-written story,” says Arclight Films svp of sales and acquisitions Clay Epstein.

The Angel Makers is produced by Jeanna Polley, Alice de Sousa and Nicolas Steil.

“We are thrilled to be working with an extremely talented and dedicated team, from our amazing cast and crew to our international sales team at Arclight Films,” said Polley. “The Angel Makers is a dark, poignant romantic drama with just the right amount of comedic elements to give it that real-life quality. The film is something everyone can relate to as it brings the audience into the lives of some very courageous, strong and independent figures who demonstrate just how strong and resilient one can be in difficult times.”

Hendricks played Joan on AMC’s hit series Mad Men for seven seasons. Her recent films include Ryan Gosling’s Lost River and Dark Places, the adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s novel starring Charlize Theron. She will also appear in Nicolas Winding Refn’s upcoming film The Neon Demon, and she’s repped by ICM Partners, LINK Entertainment and Hirsch Wallerstein.


Christina talks to “Campaign Asia”

Much like her Mad Men character Joan Holloway, Christina Hendricks is classy, intelligent and in full control of her presence both onscreen and online.

Despite increasing pressure on stars to build a strong presence on social media, Hendricks has yet to launch a public Twitter account.

“I personally don’t want to watch an actor performing and just so happen to know they love this shade of lipgloss and that they had a breakup,” she said in an interview with Campaign Asia-Pacific following her appearance today at Spikes Asia. “It becomes a distraction. I know a lot of people love it and find it an outlet for them to share, and sometimes in an artistic way or in branding themselves. I just don’t think anyone cares if I ate asparagus for dinner. I like a little bit of mystery in others, and so I try and maintain that a little bit for myself.”
