Did you hear? War and Peace is being made into a six-part one-our series, written by Andrew Davies whose name I was not familiar with but apparently, he's a well-know period piece director. The project is still in early planning stages but people are already speculating about the cast (of course!).
Davis says that he would love to cast an unknown actress to play Natasha Rostova but more well-know male actors for the roles of Pierre Bezukhov and Andrei Bolkonsky. Eddie Redmay's name has come up.
When War and Peace was on TV back in the early 1970s, Pierre was played by none other but Sir Anthony Hopkins. Pretty wild, right?!
