BBC Films and Ruby Films are producing the adaptation of what was Edith Wharton's last novel, unfinished at the time of her death.
Simon Curtis, who most recently directedMy Week With Marilyn, is in talks to helmThe Buccaneers, an adaptation of Edith Wharton’s high-society novel being produced by BBC Films and Ruby Films.
Buccaneers was Wharton’s last novel and unfinished when she died in 1937. Wharton scholar Marion Mainwaring completed the book in 1993. In the mid-'90s, BBC produced a miniseries adaptation and had the screenwriter come up with yet another ending.
