Mark Rylance to reprise his role as Thomas Cromwell is still unknown
Not expected before 2021
THE MIRROR AND THE LIGHT
The BBC will adapt Hilary Mantel’s upcoming novel The Mirror and the Light as a sequel to 2015’s Golden Globe-winning mini-series Wolf Hall, Director of Content Charlotte Moore has confirmed to Radio Times.
The hotly-anticipated historical novel will be published in March next year, and is the final part of the trilogy following Wolf Hall (2009) and Bring Up the Bodies (2012).
Director Peter Kosminsky used the first two novels as the basis for his critically-acclaimed six-part Tudor drama, which starred Mark Rylance as Thomas Cromwell, Damian Lewis as King Henry VIII, Anton Lesser as Sir Thomas More and Claire Foy as Anne Boleyn.
