It feels like we haven't seen too much of Phoebe Dynevor since her days on that first, beguiling season of Bridgerton; a show that spawned several equally-as-popular future seasons and a prequel spin-off, and reignited our love of Gilded Age pomp and corsetry. But we've recently received news that we're certainly intrigued about, and it's that Dynevor's next big project is set for release next month: a Wall Street thriller film with Netflix called Fair Play.
The film, written and directed by American filmmaker Chloe Domont, premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January to rave reviews, and was Domont's first feature-length film after producing a number of short films and television episodes. Fair Play will also be having its sophomore festival showing at the Toronto Film Festival next month.
We're excited to see Dynevor in a contemporary setting, donning a power suit and battling the corporate ladder on the streets of NYC in lieu of Bridgerton's gowns and gentle romance. Here's what we know so far about the project.
What is it about?
Fresh from their engagement, and very much in love, New York couple Emily (played by Dynevor) and Luke find that their relationship begins to sour when a coveted promotion at their cutthroat financial firm creates a rift between them. As power dynamics shift between the duo, their supportive exchanges turn to something more sinister, and both are forced to reconcile with their irrevocably altered relationship and reconsider the limits and price of ambition.
Who else is in the cast?
Alongside Dynevor, Fair Play will star Alden Ehrenreich as Luke, plus Eddie Marsan, Rich Sommer, Sebastian De Souza, Sia Alipour, and Brandon Bassir.
When and where can I watch it?
Netflix will initially release Fair Play in select theatres this September, before streaming the film on Netflix worldwide from 13 October 2023.
