Brideshead Smiles On Hayley Atwell

Hayley Atwell (TV’s “The Ruby in the Smoke”, “Cassandra’s Dream”) has joined the cast of helmer Julian Jarrold’s new film adaptation of the classic “Brideshead Revisited” tale according to HanWay Films.

Atwell will play Julia Flyte opposite Ben Whishaw and Matthew Goode in a screenplay by Andrew Davies and Jeremy Brock reports Reuters.

Based on the Evelyn Waugh novel, the story follows Charles Ryder (Goode), an Oxford student in the 1930s, who becomes entangled with a family of Catholic aristocrats – becoming friends with the alcoholic son (Whishaw), then falling in love with the daughter (Flyte).

Filming begins in late May in Oxford, Venice and Morocco.
