Searchlight Pictures has released a first look of Sam Rockwell and Saoirse Ronan in the upcoming film from the studio, See How They Run, as well as more information about the rest of the cast and the characters they’ll play.

What’s Happening:

  • Once only referred to as “Untitled Murder Mystery,” the upcoming film from Searchlight Pictures has an official title and a cast that we caught a glimpse of thanks to a first look from the studio.
  • See How They Run will star the previously-announced Sam Rockwell, Saoirse Ronan, David Oyelowo, Adrien Brody and Ruth Wilson and is set for a wide theatrical release in 2022.
  • The film is set on the West End of 1950s London, where plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.
