Golden Globe winner Sally Hawkins (Happy-Go-Lucky) has joined Fox Searchlight’s adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro’s best-selling novel Never Let Me Go. She will play a teacher at the seemingly idyllic English boarding school attended by Ruth (Keira Knightley), Kathy, (Carey Mulligan), and Tommy (Andrew Garfield). The film, directed by Mark Romanek (One Hour Photo) from a screenplay by Alex Garland (28 Days Later) begins filming in the U.K. today.
