Lily James And Paul Dano Considering BBC’s War And Peace Miniseries

30 July 2014 7:21 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In one of its most ambitious undertakings to date, the BBC is teaming with The Weinstein Company and Look Out Point to bring viewers a sprawling, six-part miniseries adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s classic tome War and Peace. Now, the pieces are falling into place for the series, with word that Lily James and Paul Dano are circling lead roles in the project.

Offers have been sent out to James, a rising star known best for her role as Lady Rose MacClare on the PBS period drama Downton Abbey, and Dano, who has been quietly building a reputation as a skilled character actor with parts in Little Miss SunshinePrisoners and 12 Years a Slave, among others. Though neither actor has been confirmed yet, James would take on the lead role of Natasha Rostova, who falls in love with Pierre Bezukhov, an awkward and illegitimate son of a wealthy Russian nobleman »

30 July 2014 7:00 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

It's probably not a total shock that a miniseries adaptation of Leo Tolstoy’s doorstop "War And Peace" is being described as "the most ambitious event series ever made for the BBC." But it is interesting to see some of the actors being sought.

Lily James and Paul Dano in talks for BBC One's War and Peace series

30 July 2014 4:11 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

Lily James and Paul Dano are in talks to appear in the BBC adaptation of War and Peace.

According to Deadline, Downton Abbey star James would play Natasha Rostova, a role previously taken by Audrey Hepburn in the 1956 film version of Leo Tolstoy's classic book.

She falls in love with Pierre Bezukhov, who Prisoners star Dano is in talks to play - an illegitimate son who rises in society.

Award-winning writer Andrew Davies - whose recent credits include Mr Selfridge and Little Dorrit - is set to pen the six-episode adaptation.

Davies previously said of the project: "[It is] not just a great novel, it's a wonderful read and it'll make a wonderful serial.

"A thrilling, funny and heartbreaking story of love, war and family life. The characters are so natural and human and easy to identify with, and Natasha Rostova just beats Lizzy Bennet as the most lovable heroine in literature. »

Paul Dano Considers War And Peace

29 July 2014 10:25 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

Though it has been adapted several times before, Leo Tolstoy’s huge tale of drama between aristocratic Russian families is once more the target of a TV project, this time a collaboration between the BBC and The Weinstein Company. Paul Dano and Lily James are mulling offers to star in the miniseries.Developed by the company behind Ripper Street and scripted by veteran novel adapter Andrew Davies, it will retell the sprawling story that's set in 1805 Russia and weaves between five rich families around the reign of Alexander I. James is being targeted to play Natasha Rostova, who falls for the wrong man – namely Dano’s Pierre Bezukhov, an awkward illegitimate son who spots a chance to climb society’s ranks but struggles with his hot temper. The actors would be playing roles originally tackled by Audrey Hepburn and Henry Fonda in the 1956 film version, so no pressure there, then. »

Bradley Cooper’s Chef Pic Gains Uma Thurman, Has Name Changed To Adam Jones

25 July 2014 5:22 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Just ahead of kicking off production, The Weinstein Company has opted to change the title of Bradley Cooper’s upcoming drama from The Chef to Adam Jones, evidently to avoid confusion with Jon Favreau’s Chef, about a food truck owner struggling to stay afloat in his personal and professional lives. Apparently, there was some sort of legal dispute behind the scenes, including a cease-and-desist order, which eventually led to the new title. However, that’s not holding Adam Jones back – in fact, as production is about to get under way, the drama has added Uma Thurman to its already impressive ensemble.

Cooper leads the film as a bad-boy Michelin chef who has to turn his life around. In addition to Thurman, Daniel Bruhl, Riccardo Scarmacio, Emma Thompson, Lily James, Omar Sy, Jamie Dornan, Sam Keeley, Sarah Greene and Alicia Vikander will all co-star. According to Deadline, the plot is »

Casting: Maude Apatow Joins 'Girls,' Uma Thurman Cooks Up 'Adam Jones' With Bradley Cooper & More

24 July 2014 1:42 PM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Let's take a break from festivals and comic book news for a (brief) moment and pivot toward some casting that's going on. Uma Thurman is the latest to join the massive ensemble—Bradley CooperSienna MillerEmma ThompsonDaniel BrühlRiccardo ScamarcioLily JamesJamie Dornan and Alicia Vikander—in the John Wells directed "Adam Jones." The cooking world movie started production today, and tells the story of the title chef who had it all—and lost it. A two-star Michelin rockstar with the bad habits to match, the former enfant terrible of the Paris restaurant scene did everything different every time out, and only ever cared about the thrill of creating explosions of taste. To land his own kitchen and that third elusive Michelin star though, he’ll need the best of the best on his side, including the beautiful Helene.  Former "Downton Abbey" dude Dan Stevens continues to put the period drama behind. »

3 July 2014 3:00 PM, PDT | E! Online | See recent E! Online news »

We're not surprised to see that Laura Carmichael, Michelle Dockery and Lily James each know how to wear a dress. The three British beauties slay week after week on their highly addictive, highly luxurious, highly popular BBC show (which we're dying to have back). But we have yet to see this trio in such similarly enchanting ensembles (because Lady Edith always gets the wardrobe shaft). Now with all things equal, which lady of the Grantham family group looks most divine in her Harper's Bazaar cover moment? First up is Lady Edith in a lovely gold creation. The lace is impeccable but it's the high neckline and long sleeves that we love most about this look, which make the star gorgeously long and »
