Hoult will play 21-year-old Stephen Wraysford, a Wwi army officer, who falls in love with a beautiful older married woman - a role played by Eddie Redmayne in the BBC's TV adaptation last year.
The screenplay is written by Rupert Wyatt based on Faulks’s book. Wyatt described Hoult as the "holy grail" in his search for a male lead to play the officer.
"His great weight, depth and range as a fearless young actor allow us to explore this timeless story of a boy broken by a tragic love affair and what it means for young men to experience the real horror of war."
