      Andrew Davies has written the film script and the young British film director Tom Harper will produce it.

The role of Andrey Bolkonsky will be played by the British actor James Norton known for his acting in Mike Leigh’s recent movie Mr. Turner (2014). Pierre Bezukhov will be played by the American actor Paul Dano who performed the carpenter in 12 Years a Slave (2013). Natasha Rostova will be played by the British actress Lily James known for her role in the Downton Abbey series.

      The BBC corporation already screened the novel in 1972. The Soviet feature film War and Peace (1965-1967) directed by Sergey Bondarchuk won the Oscar as the best foreign language film.
