The Crown star Emma Corrin is reuniting with Netflix for a female-focussed retelling of D.H. Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover, which also has Jack O’Connell (Unbroken) and Matthew Duckett (Confession) on board to star.
The official synopsis released by Netflix reads:
Based on the classic D.H. Lawrence novel, a story well ahead of its time, we follow the life of Lady Chatterley, a woman born to a life of wealth and privilege, who soon finds herself married to a man that she eventually falls out of love with. Lady Chatterley engages in a torrid affair with a gamekeeper on their English estate, discovering more desire and intimacy than she thought possible. When she realizes that she has fallen heart and soul, she breaks all traditions of the day and seeks happiness with the man she loves.
Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre (The Mustang, Mrs. America, The Act) is set to direct the film from a script by David Magee (Life of Pi, ), with Sony’s 3000 Pictures producing. Filming is set to get underway in the UK this autumn.
