Emma Corrin and Harry Styles

Emma Corrin will star opposite Harry Styles in My Policeman, a movie exploring the sexual politics of the 1950s, a time when homosexuality is illegal.

The Crown actress has landed her first major movie role in My Policeman, which is based on Bethan Roberts' 2012 novel and explores the sexual politics of the 1950s, a time when homosexuality is illegal.

Emma will play Marion, who falls for her friend's older brother, Harry's character Tom Burgess, and though the couple marry, the policeman is also in love with Patrick Hazelwood, but the two men cannot be open about their relationship.

The role of Patrick has yet to be cast, and bosses on the Amazon Films-backed picture, which will be directed by Michael Grandage, are also looking for actors to play the trio 40 years later. Taking inspiration from the novel set in 1950s Brighton, the drama will pick up in the late '90s, when the arrival of an elderly man into Tom and Marion's home triggers the exploration of “seismic events from 40 years previous.”

In the novel, the story plays out in the form of two journals, one from Marion and one from Patrick, offering their contrasting views of Tom.
