Conversations With Friends is another millennial Irish romance.
Like the much-loved story of Marianne and Connell, Conversations with Friends follows a set of Irish millennials who are drawn into complicated romantic and class dynamics. "I'm confident we're going to find fresh and interesting ways of dramatising the novel's dynamics, and I'm excited to watch the process take shape," Rooney said in a statement when BBC announced the adaptation in February 2020.
Lenny Abrahamson Is Back To Direct.
Academy Award-nominated director Lenny Abrahamson, who was also behind Normal People, will return too.
"I love its depth, humour and freshness, and it’s an honour to be involved in bringing it to the screen," Abrahamson said. “I’m particularly happy that my connection to Sally and her work is set to continue. Making Normal People has been a singular pleasure and I’m excited to be working with the same brilliant team again on Conversations With Friends.”
Normal People's creative team, writer Alice Birch, and executive producer Ed Guiney, will also return and Rooney herself as executive producer.
The Cast Includes Taylor Swift's Boyfriend, Joe Alwyn.
The role of Frances will be played by newcomer Alison Oliver, while American Honey breakout star Sasha Lane will take on the role of Bobbi. Joe Alwyn stars as Nick and Jemima Kirke will play Melissa.
