Kate Winslet is reuniting with Kenneth Branagh for a new film.
The 36-year-old British actress last worked with Branagh when she played Ophelia in his Academy Award-nominated version of Hamlet in 1996 but she's now set to play a magazine writer in his upcoming love story, The Guernsey Literary And Potato Peel Pie Society, reports the Daily Mail.
The movie - which will be based on Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Burrows's best-selling book and follows a woman who wrote columns for a magazine during World War II - is due to start shooting in March.
This year Kate, who scooped a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in The Reader in 2008, will also be reuniting with another of her best known co-stars - Leonardo DiCaprio. The pair will be promoting the 3D version of filmmaker James Cameron's blockbuster Titanic in the spring. They co-starred in the flick in 1997.
