I've reported earlier on this, but now British ITV is finally moving on with it: they have found the lead for their ultra lavish television series adaptation of Thackeray's Victorian saga VANITY FAIR! The seven episode epic series will also stream on Amazon. Mammoth Screen who is producing Poldark and Victoria will be doing this one as well!
Olivia Cooke (who recently went Victorian in Limehouse Golem) will take the lead role of Becky Sharp in the series that follows her stoic and unscrupulous attempts to make her way in English society in the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars and the rule of King George IV! The shooting starts this September in London and Budapest, so expect other casting updates this summer!
IS 'THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT'
You remember Aidan from Hobbit films
Speaking of Poldark, its shining superstar is moving onto the big screens again: Aidan Turner will play the lead role together with Sam Elliott in THE MAN WHO KILLED HITLER AND THEN THE BIGFOOT movie from Robert D. Krzykowski! As 'Deadline' reports today, the film tells the story of American soldier Calvin Barr (Aidan Turner), who leaves his true love behind to infiltrate enemy lines and kill Adolph Hitler in the heart of World War II. Decades later, Barr (now Elliott) is needed again, this time to hunt the legendary Bigfoot — carrier of a deadly plague hidden deep in the Canadian wilderness. The third season of Poldark is currently airing in UK and in USA from October.
