Polish Television and Polish Telecommunications have boarded SPI Film Studio's upcoming production War My Love!, directed by Agnieszka Holland.

The project was pitched at last year's Mannheim Meetings as Christine, a drama based on the life of Krystyna Skarbek, a woman Winston Churchill described as the most outstanding British spy of the Second World War.

Holland plans to shoot the film in English in Europe and Africa. The project has a reported budget of $15.7m (Euros 10m).

Also on board are British co-producer Mark Cooper (Shakespeare In Love, The Other Boleyn Girl) and German producer Frank Huebner (Whale Rider).
