VARIETY A new adaptation of satirical Victorian novel “Vanity Fair” starring Olivia Cooke is coming to TV, and will stream on Amazon and play on Britain’s ITV.

Amazon and ITV have joined forces on the seven-part small-screen version of the book by William Makepeace Thackeray, which will be produced by Amazon Studios and Mammoth Screen. Mammoth, which produced “Victoria,” is owned by ITV Studios.

Cooke, the star of Steven Spielberg’s “Ready Player One,” will play heroine Becky Sharp in the show, which is set against the backdrop of the Napoleonic Wars and follows her attempts to make her way in English society.

Period drama was once considered the preserve of the BBC in the U.K., but commercial network ITV has had notable historical hits in recent years with “Downton Abbey” and “Victoria,” although the World War II-set “The Halcyon” fared less well and was canceled after one season. ITV also teamed with Hulu on “Harlots,” set in the world of the 18th-century London sex trade.

Polly Hill, who joined ITV from the BBC last year, commissioned “Vanity Fair,” which will launch on ITV next year and also be on Amazon Prime Video. “‘Vanity Fair’ feels like the perfect classic to adapt for ITV, and Gwyneth Hughes’ stunning scripts bring the novel to life in a way that will really connect with a modern audience,” Hill said. “The question was always who would be our perfect Becky Sharp, and that is undoubtedly Olivia Cooke.”

This is the latest in a long line of adaptations of the novel. The BBC first took it to TV back in the 1950s, returning to it again in the 1960s in a version that also went out on PBS in the U.S. The BBC again adapted it in the 1980s and 1990s. A 2004 movie version starring Reese Witherspoon was a box-office disappointment.

The new series will be produced by Julia Stannard (“War & Peace”) with James Strong (“Broadchurch”) directing. It will be filmed in London and Budapest and shooting starts in September. ITV Studios Global Entertainment will sell the series internationally.

▶ In Cinemas September 1 (UK)
▶ Starring: Bill Nighy, Douglas Booth, Olivia Cooke
▶ Directed by Juan Carlos Medina

Synopsis: Set on the unforgiving, squalid streets of Victorian London in 1880, our tale begins in the baroque, grandiose music hall where the capital’s most renowned performer Dan Leno (Douglas Booth) takes to the stage. The whimsical thespian performs a monologue, informing his dedicated audience of the ghastly fate of a young woman who had once adorned this very stage, his dear friend Elizabeth Cree (Olivia Cooke); for the beguiling songstress is facing up to her forthcoming death by hanging, having been accused of murdering her husband John Cree (Sam Reid). Lizzie’s death seems inevitable, until Detective Inspector John Kildare (Bill Nighy) is assigned to the case of the Limehouse Golem – a nefarious, calculating serial killer, murdering innocent, unconnected victims, leaving behind barely identifiable corpses – and his distinctive signature in blood. All is not what it seems and everyone is a suspect and everyone has a secret.

THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTERDerek Weissbein will adapt the screenplay for the Maven Pictures production.
Olivia Cooke will star in the true story of tennis-star-turned-spy Alice Marble in Courting Danger.

When World War II broke out, Marble, a three-time tennis world champion at the time, defied the wishes of her longtime coach and left the sport in order to become an Allied spy, gathering intel on the Nazis that proved instrumental in the Nuremberg trials.

The feature will be adapted from Dale Leatherman’s book, Courting Danger: My Adventures in World Class Tennis, Golden Age Hollywood, and High Stakes Spying. Derek Weissbein will pen the screenplay.

Courting Danger is the latest feature from Maven Pictures (The Kids Are Alright, American Honey), with Trudie Styler and Celine Rattray producing and Jenny Halper and Susie Talbot acting as exec producers.

Cooke, whose breakout performance came in the Sundance hit Me, Earl and the Dying Girl, will soon be seen in Steven Spielberg’s Ready Player One.

Maven Pictures upcoming project include Fritz Böhm’s Wildling, starring Bel Powley and Liv Tyler, and the 1992 Los Angeles Riots drama Kings, starring Halle Berry and Daniel Craig.
