NATALIE DORMER TO PRODUCE
SPITFIRE SISTERS WW2 SERIES
|It is possible Natalie will also star in the series|
launching her own production company, the star of many period set projects Natalie Dormer
has joined with Freemantle on SPITFIRE SISTERS
, an eight episode WW2 series which will follow the women of the Air Transport Auxiliary (ATA), the ‘glamour girls’ of the battle as they take on one of the most dangerous jobs in the war. Filled with friendships, love, camaraderie, and deep tragedy and loss, the women of ATA were tasked with flying 90 different types of aircraft from base to base ready for the frontline. Female pilots from all over the world travelled to the UK to join the group but the glamour of being in the ATA came with the tragedy of flying during the war. SPITFIRE SISTERS
is the war through the eyes of the women; the dangers they faced and their fight for acceptance and equality. Morgan Lloyd Malcolm
is penning the scripts for the upcoming series.
'Falling for Figaro' - that's my kind of movie.ReplyDelete
I like comedies, I love opera music, I admire opera performers. I'm not fond of competitions, though.
I'm also extremely excited about that one, especially as I adore both Lumley and Hugh Skinner!Delete
Spitfire Sisters sounds good. I do like Natalie Dormer in most roles. I think she's prettier as a brunette, but she does look lovely in this photo with the blond hair.ReplyDelete
I myself prefer her as a blonde. I think that dress looks good on her.Delete
She definitely has the body to flaunt that dress!Delete
Gold goes well with petroleum grey and blue tones.Delete
Both look interesting to me. And that dress does indeed look stunning on Miss Natalie.ReplyDelete
Glad you agree!Delete
"Spitfire Sisters" sounds good!ReplyDelete
I knew you'd like that one.Delete
That dress is amazing! She rocks it well with those shoes. This movie does sound intriguing. Wouldn't it be nice to quit your current life and just follow your dreams?ReplyDelete
Yes, I'd open a design empire!Delete
