With production officially wrapped this past summer and with a reported release sometime in 2022, Michael Grandage and Greg Berlanti's upcoming queer romantic drama My Policeman is already on track to be of the more highly-anticipated LGBTQ+ film titles of the past few years, especially since it's starring Golden Globe winner and out, queer, The Crown star Emma Corrin alongside Grammy-winning superstar and former One Direction member Harry Styles.
A sexy take on the 2012 novel of the same name by author Bethan Roberts, the film also co-stars British actor David Dawson as Styles' male love interest and tells the emotional, dramatic story of an English love triangle during a time when queerness was criminalized.
My Policeman follows a British police officer named Tom Burgess (Styles) who, although he has fallen in loved and married a woman, a schoolteacher named Marion Taylor (Corrin), enters another romantic relationship with a man, museum curator Patrick Hazlewood (Dawson) in the 1950s. Jealousy, secrets, and the social mores of the time in regards to queerness shake up their lives and threaten everything they have, and we already know the film is probably going to give us lots of drama and angst that we just can't turn away from!
Though no exact release date has been announced just yet, out actor and My Best Friend's Wedding alum Rupert Everett (who co-stars in the film as an older version of Patrick) told Variety that he is sure the film is going to come out sometime in 2022! The film is also being produced by Amazon Studios, so we may be getting a streaming release on Prime Video before we even know it!
