Florence Pugh (Little Women) va juca intr-o alta adaptare a unui roman american celebru, East of Eden.

Noua miniserie Netflix, aflata in prezent in pre-productie, va fi scrisa si produsa executiv de actrita/ scenarista Zoe Kazan – nepoata lui Elia Kazan, cel care a regizat adaptarea initiala a romanului din 1955, in care James Dean a jucat primul lui rol important intr-un lungmetraj.

East of Eden spune povestea mai multor generatii ale familiei Trask. “I fell in love with East of Eden when I first read it, in my teens. Since then, adapting Steinbeck’s novel — the great, sprawling, three-generational entirety of it — has been my dream. More than anything, I have wanted to give full expression to the novel’s astonishing, singular antiheroine, Cathy Ames. Florence Pugh is our dream Cathy; I can’t imagine a more thrilling actor to bring this character to life,” a declarat Zoe Kazan.
