Adapted from Jane Austen's novella Lady Susan, the 1790s set story sees Beckinsale as widow Lady Susan Vernon, who heads to the country estate of her in-laws amid much speculation about her social life. There, she makes an attempt to find a husband and to help her daughter Frederica fall in love.
Sevigny plays the heroine's confidante, Alicia and Stillman has also rounded up James Fleet (Sense And Sensibility), Jemma Redgrave (I'll Be There), Emma Greenwell (Shameless), Morfydd Clark (Madame Bovary), Tom Bennett (Shadow Dancer) and Justin Edwards (The Duchess) to co-star.
Stillman has yet to lock down a release date for this one, but we would expect to see the film before the end of the year. As for The Cosmopolitans, there is no firm idea on whether it will be a series as yet, but Amazon did order more scripts. They will be delivered in two days with free shipping.
