Sept. 16 (UPI) -- Lost in Austen actress Gemma Arterton and American Hustle alum Alessandro Nivola are set to star in the three-part BBC/FX adaptation of the 1939 novel, Black Narcissus, the networks announced Monday.
Amanda Coe wrote the retelling of "Rumer Godden's iconic tale of sexual repression and forbidden love," a press release said.
"I'm thrilled to be adapting Black Narcissus for BBC One. It's a truly extraordinary love story, as well as a brilliantly unsettling piece of 20th century gothic about the power of a place to get under your skin and the dangers of refusing to learn from history," Coe said in a statement.
Filming is slated to start in October in Jomsom, Nepal, and Pinewood Studios in Britain.
