Emma Corrin, who is currently winning all sorts of awards for her role as Diana in The Crown, will take the lead role in a planned DH Lawrence adaptation.

Emma Corrin is currently being critically lauded for her work in The Crown, with the actor having already bagged a Golden Globe and the Critic’s Choice Award for her portrayal of Diana. Now, in what seems like a smart piece of casting, Corrin will play another character from the upper echelons of society who is drawn into temptation, as she takes on the title role in the upcoming film adaptation of DH Lawrence’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover. 

Corrin is reportedly in advanced negotiations to take on the role in which ‘we follow the life of Lady Chatterley, a woman born to a life of wealth and privilege, who soon finds herself married to a man that she eventually falls out of love with. Lady Chatterley engages in a torrid affair with a gamekeeper on their English estate, discovering more desire and intimacy than she thought possible. When she realizes that she has fallen heart and soul, she breaks all traditions of the day and seeks happiness with the man she loves.’

No director has been named as of yet, but Life Of Pi and Mary Poppins Returns writer David Magee has scripted the project, based on the book which has been adapted several times for the screen already. Notably including Ken Russell’s 1993 TV series which featured Joely Richardson and Sean Bean.

Corrin’s career continues to ascend following the acclaim for her role as Diana in The Crown. She is also set to star in Amazon Studios’ My Policeman, a drama where she will feature opposite Harry Styles, whilst she also appeared in 2020’s Misbehaviour. We’ll bring you more news on this one as we hear it.
