Company Pictures and writer Emma Frost are once again charged with adapting Philippa Gregory’s historical novel of the same name, which centres on the conclusion of the War of the Roses and the rise of the House of Tudor from the final years of the fifteenth century.

A studio has been confirmed, with the team expected to move in over the next few weeks.
