Haley Lu Richardson on set as Louise Brooks in The Chaperone

As fans of Louise Brooks are likely well aware, Laura Moriarty's splendid 2012 novel, The Chaperone, has been made into a film with an expected release date in 2018. Set in the early 1920's, the film tells the story of Louise Brooks' journey from Kansas to New York City accompanied by a chaperone. The film, produced by PBS Masterpiece, is set to star Elizabeth McGovern as the chaperone and Haley Lu Richardson as Louise Brooks. The Chaperone has been scripted by Julian Fellowes (Downton Abbey) and directed by Michael Engler. It will air on PBS stations nationwide after its initial theatrical run.

More information about the production can be found HERE. A full listing of the cast can be found on IMDb HERE.

Recently, a handful of images of Haley Lu Richardson as Louise Brooks turned up on  HALEYLURICHARDSON.NET, a "fansite made by fans for fans in no way affiliated with Haley Lu, her family, friends or management." These unattributed images, taken on the set on August 8, 2017, are our first glimpse of the actress who plays Brooks. The entire set can be found HERE.
