Emma Corrin will star in Netflix's adaptation of the infamously steamy 'Lady Chatterley's Lover', and it's set to be raunchier than Bridgerton

If our viewing habits over the last year have taught us anything, it’s that we go slightly mad for a bit of raunch. It’s almost as if months of virtual dating has left us sexually frustrated? At least we’ve been able to live our best, sexually liberated lives through our fave fictional characters. Take Netflix‘s Sex/Life and Bridgerton, which were both enormously successful – in part thanks to their tantalising sex scenes.

Reckon you’ve binged every vaguely horny TV show? We have great news: Netflix have announced plans to adapt D. H. Lawrence’s notably raunchy novel, Lady Chatterley’s Lover, into a film. Starring none other than Emma Corrin (AKA Princess Diana in The Crown) and Jack O’Connell (AKA Cook from Skins)!

If Lady Chatterley’s Lover immediately takes you back to A-Level English Literature, Netflix’s adaptation will bring you back to reality with a bang. D. H. Lawrence’s steamy novel, with it’s litany of f-words, c-words, and oh-so crude descriptions of sex, may have been cringe-inducing as a teenager, but now? Bring it on.

Here’s everything we know about Lady Chatterley’s Lover so far:

They also tweeted that, “Director Laure de Clermont-Tonnerre’s romance drama is a re-telling of the classic D.H. Lawrence novel about a married woman who engages in a torrid affair with the estate gamekeeper.”

If you’ve managed not to repress your A-Level coursework on the novel, you’ll remember that while it was first published in 1928, the book wasn’t available in the UK until the 1960s. This was, in part, due to the book’s explicit content, which was deemed as too obscene to be read. Sounds good to us.

Who will star in Lady Chatterley’s Lover?

Emma Corrin, Jack O’Connell, and Matthew Duckett (A Confession) will star in the adaptation.

Is there a release date for Lady Chatterley’s Lover?

Not yet. We’ll keep you posted!

Is there a trailer for Lady Chatterley’s Lover?

We don’t have a trailer for Netflix’s new film just yet. However, in the mean time you can watch GLAMOUR’s Unfiltered interview with Emma Corrin:
