Ripley: Identity Theft Drama by Andrew Scott Creates a Buzz on Netflix!

In the upcoming Netflix miniseries Ripley, Andrew Scott will take us on a wild ride. Through the complex web of identity, deceit, and everything illicit, Scott is here to change the rules. So, let go of your preconceived notions about con artists and swindlers.

Scott plays Tom Ripley in Patricia Highsmith’s adaptation of a beloved crime novel. Ripley is a man on a mission to steal whole lives rather than just identities.

Ripley is more than just a miniseries, with a cast that promises to keep you on the edge of your seat. Bonus, it also includes Dakota Fanning and Johnny Flynn.

It is an incredible ride filled with betrayal, intrigue, and mind-blowing twists. All combined will leave you wondering about everything you thought you knew about the nature of truth and lies.

In the video, a wealthy man’s son is played as Scott stealthily assumes his identity. It demonstrates the extent of what he will do to further his deceit. On April 4, the miniseries will be accessible via streaming.

What is the story of Ripley?

According to the synopsis, “Tom Ripley, a grifter struggling to make ends meet in early 1960s New York, is hired by a wealthy man to travel to Italy to try and convince his vagrant son Dickie Greenleaf to return home.”

“The moment Tom accepts the job, a convoluted life of deceit, fraud, and murder begins. In the meantime, an American resident in Italy, Marge Sherwood, believes Tom’s easygoing nature conceals more sinister intentions.”

Steven Zaillian, a filmmaker nominated for an Oscar, is the writer and director of Ripley. Aside from Scott and Fanning, Johnny Flynn, who plays Dickie Greenleaf, will also be directing the miniseries along with Pasquale Esposito, Franco Silvestri, Eliot Sumner, John Malkovich, and others.

In collaboration with Entertainment 360 and Filmrights, Scott and Endemol Shine North America are producing it.

Charlie Corwin, Philipp Keel, Ben Forkner, Guymon Casady, Garrett Basch, and Zaillian are the executive producers.

For his upcoming Netflix series Ripley, Andrew Scott is changing once more.

In the upcoming series, which is based on Patricia Highsmith’s 1955 crime novel The Talented Mr. Ripley—which also served as the inspiration for the 1999 film of the same name starring Matt Damon—the Fleabag actor and recent Golden Globe nominee plays the title character.

Set in the 1960s, the eight-episode series stars Scott as con artist Tom Ripley, sent to Italy by a wealthy man to persuade his son who has gone astray to come back home. Jude Law portrayed said son in the previous film adaptation, Dickie Greenleaf, which Johnny Flynn, the star of Emma, plays.

Instead of concentrating on getting Dickie back home, Ripley gets absorbed into his affluent world and becomes enamored with his extravagant life overseas.

He even attempts to mimic Dickie’s voice and pass for an informal American accent in the trailer that was released on Monday. Dakota Fanning plays Marge Sherwood in the television series, costarring with Gwyneth Paltrow in the film from 1999.

Marge is the one who has the greatest misgivings about Tom; as Dickie’s life goes out of control and devolves into murder and deception, her misgivings about the new man multiply.

Tom is described as “one of those people who takes advantage of people” by Marge in the teaser. “I do not think well of him. He is not being truthful. It is his profession.”
