    Besides Johansson, there is another big name attached to the project as Oscar-winning British playwright-screenwriter Christopher Hampton is on board to write the screenplay of the limited series. Hampton originally wrote a feature script adaptation of Custom Of The Country about two decades ago for Michelle Pfeiffer who had starred in the 1993 feature Age Of Innocence, based on Wharton's book.
