What Is My Policeman About?
Roberts' original novel, released in 2012, tells the story of Tom, a gay policeman living in Brighton, England, in the 1950s, who weds schoolteacher Marion. Years later, Tom strikes up a romance with a man named Patrick, a museum curator, and due to the constraints of the era, Marion and Patrick must secretly share him, "until one of them breaks and three lives are destroyed."
Deadline reports that the adaptation will begin in the 1990s, with an encounter between the elderly Tom and Patrick forcing them to look back on their love affair 40 years prior.
"The arrival of elderly invalid Patrick into Marion and Tom’s home triggers the exploration of seismic events from 40 years previous: the passionate relationship between Tom and Patrick at a time when homosexuality was illegal," reads the description.
Styles and Corrin are set to star as Tom and Marion, respectively. No word yet on who will take on the role of Patrick.
Amazon is also due to reveal the three older actors who will appear as the lovers in the ’90s.
When Will My Policeman Be Released?
According to Collider, the series will begin production later this year, so we can expect the film to drop sometime in late 2022.
