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 just saw on Twitter that Luca’s next project will start filming on April 5 so idk what’s going on with Brideshead". Well, I think we can be pretty sure it hasn't started/won't be finished by early April. So, I choose to believe it's been pushed back from its original spring schedule - from what I remember it's mainly a summer story anyway - which means it shouldn't clash with CWF, which means Joe should still be able to do both. Which is Good News. 😁

yeah seems Brideshead Revisited has been pushed back, I guess this other film needed to be filmed first. It works out for Joe so that's good!

I heard through the rumour mill that there might be a Harry Potter tv series on HBO. If it's true Joe Alwyn should definitely play as Lucius Malfoy and Katie McGrath as Bellatrix LeStrange

yes heard that too, apparently it's still in a very early development phase but could be cool! 

I really want Joe to work with Brad Pitt, I think they could pull off playing brothers or Joe could play a younger version of Brad etc

Joe could definitely play a younger version

Is there any chance they’re filming BR rn? Cate didn’t attend the golden globes 👀

I just saw on Twitter that Luca's next project (the one with Timothee Chalamet) will start filming on April 5 so idk what's going on with Brideshead

anya won for the queen's gambit!! also her outfit was !!!

yes so happy for her!! loved her green dress '

i just finished reading CWF last night and i absolutely loved it!! i’m so excited to see Joe play Nick since he’s such an essential character. It was also so easy to picture Joe in that role

are you going to watch the golden globes?

yes even though everything that's come out the last couple of weeks is a mess

I can’t remember nick’s nationality being mentioned but fwiw I listened to the audio book and he was irish lol

thanks!
