Mendes on the (Middle) March

Having already tackled Middlemarch himself in a 1994 BBC minisereies, Romancing the Tome's prolific patron saint Andrew Davies is writing a new screenplay of the George Eliot tome to be directed by Sam Mendes, according to BBC News. No word yet on who will be cast, but Mendes' wife, Kate Winslet will perchance make the cut. Production begins next year. -- Amy
