Emilia Clarke is taking a break from dancing with dragons to go have “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
The “Game of Thrones” star is going to be starring as Holly Golightly in Richard Greenberg’s new adaptation of Truman Capote’s classic novel. “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” will premiere at the Shubert Theater in New York in February — you know, after Clarke has finished wrapping season three of “Game of Thrones.” Greenberg, who won a Tony for his work on “Take Me Out,” has written the script, while Sean Mathais will direct it.
“The goal of this version is to return to the original setting of the novella, which is the New York of the Second World War, as well as to resume its tone — still stylish and romantic, yes, but rougher-edged and more candid than people generally remember,” Greenberg says in a statement, via Entertainment Weekly. “Capote was a great writer and a natural maker of plots and ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’ has a drive that makes it very alluring to dramatize.”
Now it’s time to start speculating who will play Holly’s love interest, Fred. Who would you pick?
