Howards End plans filming dates

WestminsterA new TV adaptation of EM Forster’s 1910 novel Howards End is scheduled to move into pre-production soon.

The story follows three families from different sides of the social spectrum and the conventions and codes of conduct that dictate their lives.

James Ivory famously directed a feature verion of the story in 1992 with leads Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson, which won three Academy Awards and two BAFTAs.

The new TV version is being co-produced by Playground Television and will shoot in London locations. The project has been tracked by The Knowledge’s subscription service Production Intelligence since the project was first announced in the summer of 2015.

Playground Entertainment was first set up by producer Colin Callender in 2012 in the US and the company has been ramping up its UK-based operation since early last year. 

Production Intelligence subscribers can log in now for details of the key crew involved including the line producer and director, and also for information about pre-production dates.
