Florence Pugh breathed new life into another classic novel: The Little Girl Star is set as the lead role in an adaptation of East Eden on Netflix. Pugh would play Cathy Ames in the web series. The film’s writer and executive producer is Zoe Kazan. Grandfather of Zoe, Elia Kazan, directed a film adaptation of the 1955 novel. The film stars James Dean, Julie Harris, Raymond Massey, Richard Davalos and Jo Van Fleet. Jo Van Fleet won an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for her role as Cathy. The novel also has many other adaptations.

The classic novel tells the story of two families: the Trasks and the Hamiltonians and their interrelationships between the beginning of the twentieth century and the end of the First World War. The Hamiltonians are believed to be based on the family of Steinbeck’s mother. Pugh was chosen as Cathy Ames, who grew up near the Trask family farm. In the novel, he burns down his family’s house and kills both of his parents.

She fell in love with East of Eden when she first read it, in her teen. Since then, Steinbeck’s novel. “It’s big, wide, three generations in total that has been my dream. More than what I want, give my full expression early Florence Pugh is our dream Cathy, I can’t imagine an exciting actor bringing this character to life. Writing this limited series in the last two years has been the highest point of my life. I hope that with our partners at Netflix, Anonymous Content and Endeavor Content, we can accommodate this material and shed new light on it for audiences in the 21st century, said Zoe.”

Pugh stars in Olivia Wilde’s Don’t Worry Darling, which will be released on September 23. Oppenheimer will also die next year, based on physicist J. Robert Oppenheimer and the development of the atomic bomb, Good Man Zach Braff and Dune Part 2. Kazan dies in She Said as Jodi Kantor, in New York Times reporters broke it breaking the story of Harvey Weinstein’s accusations of sexual assault. Before this, Kazan has written Ruby Sparks and Wildlife.

Netflix did not release an official statement about the series and did not announce the director.
