Tom Hiddleston and Hayley Atwell are set to star in period drama Close Enough.
The British stars, who are reprising their roles in Marvel sequels Thor: The Dark World and Captain America: The Winter Soldier respectively, have signed onto the 1930s film, reported Screen Daily.
Tom will play war photographer Robert Capa, with Hayley as Gerda Toro, the first famous female war photographer in the romantic drama, which will be directed by Song For Marion's Paul Andrew Williams.
"The idea of bringing these two iconic, extraordinary characters to the big screen is one I relish. Not only is it a beautiful love story, but Capa and Gerda influenced each other in such a dramatic way that it changed the idea of photo journalism for ever," said the director.
"I am more than delighted to be working with Tom and Hayley. After I met with Tom his passion for this project and his commitment to the script and character was so exciting. Hayley is someone I have wanted to work with for a long time and after a few near misses we have finally found, what I believe to be, the best project to collaborate on."
Paul added: "The chemistry between Capa and Gerda was electric and I have confidence that Tom and Hayley will repeat that chemistry on film."
Production is expected to begin in June, with a release date to be announced later.
