Netflix and Sony’s 3000 Pictures are teaming up together to produce a new adaptation of D. H. Lawrence’s classic novel Lady Chatterley’s Lover with The Crown’s breakout star Emma Corrin at its center. This film forms part of the first-ever partnership agreement between Netflix and Sony, which was signed earlier in this year.
Netflix’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover will be directed by The Mustang helmer Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre, who also directed episodes for Mrs. America and The Act. The film's script was written by David Magee. Magee’s credits include Finding Neverland, Life of Pi, Mary Poppins Returns and the upcoming live-action adaptation of The Little Mermaid.
Laurence Mark, Academy Award nominee and Academy Award nominee Pete Czernin of Blueprint Pictures is producing. Graham Broadbent and Graham Broadbent are Academy Award nominees. Marisa Paiva and Nikki Cooper are the executives overseeing the project for 3000 Pictures.
The story is based on D.H. Lawrence's classic novel. It follows Lady Chatterley who, despite her wealth and privilege, soon falls in love with a man she married. Lady Chatterley has an affair with the gamekeeper of their English estate. She discovers more love and intimacy than she ever imagined. She realizes she is in love with him and breaks every tradition.
At the center of Netflix’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover will be Emma Corrin who immediately became a breakout star after portraying Lady Diana Spencer in the fourth season of Netflix’s The Crown. She will be joined by Jack O’Connell (Godless, SAS: Rogue Heroes) and Matthew Duckett (A Confession, Demetrinox).
Production for Netflix’s Lady Chatterley’s Lover originally was only given a broad fall 2021 filming start date but we can confirm that filming got underway in London on September 13th, 2021.
According to a local Welsh news report, filming took place near Lake Vyrnwy (North Wales). They suggest they filmed there on September 20th “near the northern section of the lake as well as the main dam”.
Other reports suggest filming also took place around Snowdonia (the UK’s highest mountain range).
Netflix and Sony haven’t set an official date for Lady Chatterley’s Lover, but we would expect it to be released on the streamer sometime in 2022.
