But he won’t be sitting on his laurels.
No, the Dublin actor will be appearing in a new Netflix series that we’re sure to be obsessed with!
He will play the notorious literary con man first introduced in The Talented Mr. Ripley.
The synopsis of the upcoming film reads: “Scott’s Tom Ripley is a grifter scraping by in early ’60s New York. He’s hired by a wealthy industrialist to travel to Italy to try to convince the man’s dilettante son, Dickie Greenleaf (Johnny Flynn), to return home. Accepting the job is Tom’s first step into a complex life of deceit, fraud, and murder.”
Johnny Flynn (Lovesick, Emma) also appears in the upcoming mini-series as Dickie Greenleaf, the wealthy loafer who Ripley is attempting to lure home, there’s Dakota Fanning (The Equalizer, The First Lady) as Marge Sherwood, Dickie’s girlfriend, who suspects darker motives underlie Tom’s affability.
The limited series is based on Patricia Highsmith’s bestselling Tom Ripley novels, so fans are sure to be delighted with the news.
Unfortunately we don’t have an official launch date. We just know that we’ll see the show sometime in 2024.
