Bisset cast in Peter And John movie

Jacqueline Bisset is set to star in new costume drama Peter And John.

The Dancing On The Edge star will play the female lead in the big screen adaptation of the French novel Pierre et Jean, by Guy de Maupassant, written in 1887, Variety reported.

The film tells the story of a family whose lives are upended when a family friend dies and leaves his estate to one of the sons.

Director Jay Craven is due to begin shooting the independent movie in Nantucket later this month.

Jacqueline, 69, won a Golden Globe for best supporting actress in a TV miniseries for Dancing On The Edge earlier this year,

She will next appear opposite Gerard Depardieu in director Abel Ferrara's Welcome To New York, based on the rise and fall of Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
