'Brooklyn' Is Being Spun Into a TV Series
Published Feb 05, 2016There's no denying that the John Crowley/Nick Hornby film Brooklyn is one of the most charming this Oscar season, and it looks like we might not be done with some of its characters just yet. A television series based on characters from the film is currently in the works.
Screen Daily reports that the new television series is currently being adapted for the BBC. It's being produced by Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey of Wildgaze Films — the same company that produced the film.
Now a veritable star, Saoirse Ronan won't be returning to her character for the series. Instead, it'll follow the New York boarding house operated by Miss Kehoe. Julie Walters is expected to return to the role. Anyone who's seen Brooklyn will likely be happy to return to the hilarity of the boarding house's dining room.
The yet-to-be-titled series is still recruiting writers, and likely won't have a firm release date until Brooklyn has completed its theatrical run.
