Joe has an exciting new project! A 12-part series adaptation of Conversations with Friends, written by the same author of Normal People, Sally Rooney. Joe, who is playing Nick, will be starring alongside Sasha Lane (Bobbi), Alison Oliver (Frances), and Jemima Kirke (Melissa). The show films this year in Dublin, Belfast, plus international locations and will air on BBC Three/BBC One and Hulu next year (2022)! Read more about the series below, via Element Pictures:

Following the outstanding success of Normal People, award-winning production company Element Pictures (The Favourite, Room, The Lobster) has today announced the highly anticipated casting for the BBC and Hulu TV adaptation of Sally Rooney’s debut literary sensation, Conversations with Friends.

Alison Oliver, an emerging talent from Lir Academy (whose graduates include Normal People’s Paul Mescal) will play Frances, Sasha Lane (American Honey, The Miseducation of Cameron Post) will star as Bobbi, Joe Alwyn (The Favourite, Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk) as Nick and Jemima Kirke (Sex EducationGirls) as Melissa, in this unique series that is both a complex coming of age drama and a very modern love story.

Element Pictures is once again collaborating with director Lenny Abrahamson and writer Alice Birch who will work alongside writers Mark O’Halloran (Rialto), Meadhbh McHugh (Asking For It) and Susan Soon He Stanton (Succession) on the 12-part drama for BBC Three in partnership with Hulu.

Conversations with Friends follows Frances (Alison Oliver), a 21 year old college student, as she navigates a series of relationships that force her to confront her own vulnerabilities for the first time.

Frances is observant, cerebral and sharp. Her ex-girlfriend, now best friend, Bobbi (Sasha Lane) is self-assured, outspoken and compelling. Though they broke up three years ago, Frances and Bobbi are virtually inseparable and perform spoken word poetry together in Dublin. It’s at one of their shows that they meet Melissa (Jemima Kirke), an older writer, who is fascinated by the pair.

Bobbi and Frances start to spend time with Melissa and her husband, Nick (Joe Alwyn), a handsome but reserved actor. While Melissa and Bobbi flirt with each other openly, Nick and Frances embark on an intense, secret affair that is surprising to them both. Soon the affair begins to test the bond between Frances and Bobbi, forcing Frances to reconsider her sense of self, and the friendship she holds so dear.

Filming will take place this year in Dublin, Belfast and international locations yet to be confirmed, with the Oscar-nominated director at the helm of Normal People,  Lenny Abrahamson (Room, The Little Stranger, Frank) returning and sharing the directorial duties with Leanne Welham (Pili, His Dark Materials).

Piers Wenger, Director of BBC Drama, says: “Lenny’s deep affinity for Sally’s writing and talent for finding actors to bring her fictional creations to life played a huge part in bringing Normal People so successfully to screen. In casting Alison, Sasha, Joe and Jemima, that same flair and instinct is in evidence and we cant wait to see how they will bring Frances, Bobbi, Nick and Melissa to life

Lenny Abrahamson, Executive Producer and Director, comments: “I feel so excited to be collaborating with four such superb actors to bring Sally’s brilliant novel to the screen. Over the last few months it has been a privilege to work alongside Element Pictures and our extraordinary team of writers to get the scripts to a point where we all feel so excited to start shooting. I’ll be joined by a world class crew (many of whom worked on Normal People) and supporting cast and I’m particularly happy to have Leanne Welham come on board. I’ve been an admirer of her work for a long time and I have no doubt she will bring great skill and subtlety to the episodes she directs.”

Ed Guiney, Executive Producer and Company Director of Element Pictures, adds: Alison, Sasha, Joe and Jemima are the dream cast to lead Conversations With Friends and all of us at Element are so excited about the incredible scripts from our amazing team of writers which we have been developing with the oversight of the brilliant Lenny Abrahamson. We can’t wait to start filming with Lenny, Leanne and our wonderful cast and crew to bring Sally’s extraordinary novel to the screen.”

I wonder if the person who suggested BR would film in the UK late May-July was confused by the casting call. I think - think! - this is what they were referring to (www*projectcasting*com/casting-calls-acting-auditions/brideshead-revisited-cast/). It does say it's a casting for BR, and it does mention May-July as the filming date, but it also says it's for a two-part Sky series, which BR is not. Have two separate calls been mistakenly merged? If so, there's still hope these aren't BR's dates!

the one I looked at originally wasn't an article like that, it was like a job post on the website for the casting but I've just checked and it doesn’t come up anymore

scenes of joe in the billy lynn movie were shown a few times for the ang lee tribute at the baftas! 🥰

i watched a video of last night but now it's been deleted, but anyway, yeah they showed I think 3 or 4 clips of Joe as Billy Lynn during the montage which was nice! '

What do you think of each of joe’s upcoming / unreleased projects? Are you worried about any or super excited about any? What do you think?

i'm excited about all of them especially CWF! And I love that there all different, like Joe's role in each one is different from the others. I am a bit worried about Brideshead Revisited, just because it may conflict with CWF for filming, but hopefully he can still do it

I’ve seen that “last letter from your lover” will be postponed till August (if I remember correctly) in Germany at least

yeah looking like a summer release now, which is for the best! let's just hope it doesn't need to be delayed again!

I can confirm that Felicity's Graham Norton ep isn't on iPlayer right now. The most recent one is series 28, ep 23

thanks! i wonder if maybe they'll air it next week instead

This is so cute! Some fans shared their signed CDs, and they found WB's signatures and also a doodle. It seems like a door. Maybe it is "I'm leaving out the side door". They are so lucky! https://weibo.com/6491233822/Ka9KCvBlr?type=comment#_rnd1618072862921

omg i love when people find WBs

I read that they didn’t air the episode of the graham norton show yesterday because of the princes death

that's what i read too, maybe it's available on the BBC iplayer 

Metal Lords Actor Isis Hainsworth Takes Major

Did Felicity go on Graham Norton?

she did but I haven't seen much about it, this Daily Mail article (x) mentions some of the stuff she talked about

Hey Tracey :) could you please create a time line with all the release dates for Joe’s projects? That would be awesome!!

Hi, I'd love to but we don't know any of the release dates ...The Souvenir Part II will come out later this year according to this article x

"The distributor is planning what it describes as an "ambitious full cinema release" for later in 2021 [in the UK]″
