Dutch director Sacha Polak is now attached to Mirror Productions’ Vita and Virginia.

The feature centres on the love affair between Virginia Woolf and lover Vita Sackville-West.

Eileen Atkins wrote the screenplay based on her play of the same name.

Polak’s first feature was the award-winning Hemel, and she is now in post on follow-up Zurich.

Vita and Virginia is being produced by Mirror Productions founding partner Evangelo Kioussis with Bill Shepherd of Bill Shepherd Productions.

The script is now going out to cast, with production slated for early spring 2015. 

Mirror is also in production now, shooting in South Wales, on black comedy Petroleum Spirit.
