Simon Curtis Launches “The Buccaneers”

Simon Curtis (“My Week With Marilyn”) is in talks to direct an adaptation of the Edith Wharton novel “Buccaneers” for Ruby Films says Variety.

Set in London during a time when it was fashionable to marry for social position rather than romantic love, the story follows a group of American women seeking English husbands.

Alison Owen and Faye Ward will produce. Shooting aims to begin during the second quarter of next year.
