ITV commisions Beowulf series

A few weeks back it was announced that ITV were moving forward with an adaptation of Jekyll & Hyde, today we are hearing news that they have also commissioned another classic Horror story. They are adapting Beowulf, which is being described as "an epic re-imagining of one of literature's greatest and most enduring heroes" this series is being created by James Dormer, Tim Haines and Katie Newman. Filming will start in April 2015, no casting has been made as of yet.

ITV have said about the series "a western set in the Dark Ages of Britain’s mythic past, the story unfolds on a huge canvas, filmed amongst the breathtaking beauty of England’s North East."

"Hundreds of years ago our ancestors listened to the story of Beowulf because it was a great adventure story – it scared them, thrilled them, made them laugh and cry," Dormer who will write and executive produce the series went on to say, "But they also listened because they recognized themselves and their fears in it. By holding a mirror up to them this story helped define them and thus – us. So it’s incredibly exciting to have the opportunity to make it relevant again for a wide audience – to let them own it again. To let them see themselves in it."

"Beowulf is a series with a charismatic protagonist at its heart," Director of Drama Steve November said. "Equally it’s a spirited and fascinating ensemble drama with each character taking their own emotional and sometimes perilous journey. We’re delighted to be commissioning Beowulf and to be working with Tim Haines and his production team,".
