Harry Potter’s Ralph Fiennes Set to Direct Adaptation of “THE INVISIBLE WOMAN”
Ralph Fiennes can do more than play the nemesis of Harry Potter. His talents extend behind the camera too where he has quietly started a directing career. Fiennes’ next project will be an adaptation of the novel “The Invisible Woman.”
The nonfiction work from Claire Tomalin tells the tale of an affair between Charles Dickens, author of “Great Expectations,” and actress Nelly Ternan. Abi Morgan wrote the script for the film and the project is set to hit theaters in 2012 to coincide with Dickens’ 200th birthday.
Dickens and Ternan met and began a secret relationship in 1857 when he was 45 and she just 18. A year later Dickens separated from his wife and Ternan traveled with him until his death. Fiennes is best known for his recent work as Lord Voldemort in the “Harry Potter” film franchise.
