REBECCA Hall is to unite with Game of Thrones star Richard Madden for new period drama A Promise.

According to Variety, the film will be set in pre-World War I Germany and will follow the fortunes of a young engineer, played by Madden, goes to work for a wealthy older man and ends up falling for the benefactor’s wife, played by Hall.

Once war breaks out, the two are forced to postpone their relationship but they subsequently meet again nine years later.

The part marks one of Madden’s first leading roles since his breakout as Robb Stark in HBO’s Game of Thrones.

Hall, meanwhile, has recently been seen on acclaimed BBC2 drama Parade’s End and is currently filming Iron Man 3 (as Maya Hansen).
