The BBC is planning the latest reimagining of Evelyn Waugh’s classic novel Brideshead Revisited, with Parade’s End producer Mammoth Screen attaching Call Me By Your Name helmer Luca Guadagnino to write and direct.
The Daily Mail reported that HBO and a stellar cast — including Ralph Fiennes, Cate Blanchett and Andrew Garfield — have signed up for the Brideshead Revisited remake, though Deadline understands that this is premature.
Mammoth is still speaking to a number of broadcasters in the U.S., including HBO, and casting deals remain in flux. Rooney Mara and Joe Alwyn were two other names the Daily Mail linked to the series.
They better make it happen. I want Blanchett to reunite with Fiennes and win Emmy.
