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.

This is a great time to go shopping. You'll find some clothes, furniture or artwork that seems tailor made to your taste. Don't worry about spending more money than usual. The things you buy will give you years of pleasure. If you're looking for work, volunteer at a charitable organisation that is close to your heart. This will lead to a paying position that is emotionally fulfilling. You're tired of dead end jobs that leave you cold. It's time to move in a more rewarding direction.More
