In a world where everyone is striving for what is not worth having... A new adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray’s Vanity Fair will be brought to our screens in 2018.
Written by Gwyneth Hughes (Dark Angel, The Girl, Miss Austen Regrets) and co-produced by leading production companies Mammoth Screen (Victoria and Poldark) and Amazon Studios, Olivia Cooke - star of Steven Spielberg’s forthcoming film Ready Player One - plays Thackeray’s timeless heroine Becky Sharp.
Thackeray’s literary classic is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars, and follows Becky Sharp as she attempts to claw her way out of poverty and scale the heights of English Society. Her story of “villainy, crime, merriment, lovemaking, jilting, laughing, cheating, fighting and dancing” takes her all the way to the court of King George IV, via the Battle of Waterloo, breaking hearts and losing fortunes as she goes.
