As if Florence Pew wasn’t busy enough, she has another project in the works for Netflix!
Pew will star in the upcoming mini-series “East of Eden”, based on the novel of the same name by John Steinbeck in 1952, according to Deadline.
The action of the series takes place in the Salinas Valley in California. The series tells the story of two families, Cod and Hamilton, whose stories coincide with the biblical stories of Cain and Abel, Adam and Eve.
In the Netflix project, Zoe Kazan will become executive producer and screenwriter. The 1955 film adaptation was shot by Zoe’s grandfather, Elijah Kazan.
“Florence Pew is our dream Katie,” Kazan shared. “I can’t imagine a more exciting actor to revive this character.”
The film was a great success and is considered the first starring role of James Dean. Julie Harris, Joe Van Fleet, Raymond Messi starred in the film, which was nominated for a number of prestigious awards and won Fleet “Oscar” for “Best Supporting Actress.” In 1956, the film won the Golden Globe for Best Picture in the Drama category.
Deadline reported that the film adaptation of the limited series “will explore the themes of novel trauma and recovery; love and betrayal; duty and free will ”.
“The series will feature an intimate portrait of the Trask family against the backdrop of vast historical forces.”
Release date not yet set.
