“Game of Thrones” actress Natalie Dormer has signed a multi-year first-look deal with Fremantle. Under the terms of the agreement, Dormer and Fremantle will develop a slate of drama projects together.
Dormer, Fremantle and Mainstreet Pictures are currently developing “Vivling,” a series based on the life of British actress Vivien Leigh. The story will follow the highs and lows of the much-loved starlet who conquered Hollywood and give audiences a glimpse into the complex mind of the creative genius, per Fremantle’s Monday announcement.
“I am absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Fremantle,” Dormer said. “Their impressive slate reflects a dedication to the highest quality storytelling and the strength of their reputation internationally.”
“Natalie is a true talent both as an actress and producer. Her great ambition and taste for compelling entertaining projects is a perfect mix to add to the Fremantle family,” Christian Vesper, Fremantle’s executive vice president and creative director for global drama, added. “We’re excited to be working with Natalie and to announce further new projects soon.”
Dormer (“The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2,” “Captain America: The First Avenger”) and Fremantle recently teamed on “Picnic at Hanging Rock,” an adaptation of a Joan Lindsay novel that ran on Foxtel and Amazon.
