Elizabeth Debicki to Play Virginia Woolf
    2017-August-25  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

“GUARDIANS of the Galaxy” and “The Night Manager” actress Elizabeth Debicki will play writer Virginia Woolf in “Vita & Virginia,” the upcoming period drama based on the love letters between Woolf and 1920s socialite Vita Sackville-West.

Gemma Arterton is attached to play Vita in the drama, the sophomore feature from British director “Chanya Button.”

Italian actress Isabella Rossellini has also joined the cast of the film, which is set to begin principle photography in Ireland in September. Rupert Penry-Jones and Peter Ferdinando co-star.

The film is an adaptation of the award-winning play by actress and writer Eileen Atkins. Atkins and Button co-wrote the script to “Vita & Virginia,” which tells the true story of socialite Vita and literary icon Virginia, who cross paths in 1920s London. Vita decides to make Virginia her lover, no matter the cost. Their affair has been cited as a primary inspiration for Woolf’s gender-bending classic “Orlando.” Atkins also wrote the screenplay to Marleen Gorris’ 1997 adaptation of “Mrs. Dalloway,” Woolf’s most acclaimed novel, which starred Vanessa Redgrave and Natascha McElhone.

“‘Vita & Virginia’ will be a fresh, provocative study of creativity, passion, sex and sexuality; and it offers an exciting opportunity to bring the story behind the creation of ‘Orlando,’ one of Virginia Woolf’s greatest works to life in a bold, vivid, contemporary way,” said director Button in a statement. “With my lifelong passion for Woolf’s writing, it is a great privilege to be working with such brilliant women as Gemma and Elizabeth, to bring the lives of Vita Sackville-West and Virginia Woolf to the screen.”

Australian Debicki is fresh off supporting role in “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2.” (SD-Agencies)
