During the Berlin Festival, it was revealed that are plans for The Secret Scripture shooting to start in late May in Ireland with Thaddeus O’Sullivan directing.

Voltage Pictures is currently in Berlin for set international sells, Variety is reporting.

The novel, published in 2008, centers on a 100-year-old woman who has been in a soon-to-be-demolished mental hospital in Ireland for half her life and a psychiatrist tries to understand why she is there. The woman has been keeping an autobiography — covering Ireland’s upheavals during the 1920s and 1930s — under the floorboard in her room.
