Dakota adds another project to her list Ripley, she will join Andrew Scott in the drama series based on Patricia Highsmith’s Tom Ripley novels.

From Oscar winner Steven Zaillian (Schindler’s List, The Night Of), Scott stars as Tom Ripley, a grifter scraping by in early 1960s New York who is hired by a wealthy businessman to travel to Italy to try to convince his vagabond son to return home. Tom’s acceptance of the job is his first step into a complex life of deceit.
Fanning will portray Marge Sherwood, an American living in Italy who suspects darker motives underlie Tom’s affability.
“Dakota Fanning is the perfect choice to play the deliciously complicated Marge opposite Andrew Scott’s Tom Ripley,” said Amy Israel, exec vp scripted programming at Showtime. “She’s an actor that brings smarts and vulnerability to every part, with so much bubbling beneath the surface. We can’t wait to see her sink her teeth into this role in Steve Zallian’s Ripley.” – The Hollywood Reporter
