Having seen Olivia Colman absolutely dominate the screen in 2018's The Favourite, we're thrilled to learn that she's on tap to play another, er, strong-willed woman.
This time, though, the role is fictional: Miss Havisham from Great Expectations.
The Hollywood Reporter shared the exciting news that Colman is headlining the FX/BBC limited series based on the Charles Dickens novel.
Joining her are Fionn Whitehead (Pip), Shalom Brune-Franklin (Estella), and Johnny Harris (Magwitch).
Production has begun on the six-part series.
