Timothy Spall and son to star in Forster classic for ITV1

Timothy Spall and his son Rafe are to appear in a new ITV1 adaptation of EM Forster’s A Room with a View.

The pair will appear together for the first time as father and son, with Timothy Spall playing Mr Emerson and Rafe playing George in an adaptation by Andrew Davies, who adapted Bleak House for the BBC. It is being made by IWC Media, part of the RDF Media Group.

The cast also includes Laurence Fox as Cecil Vyse, Sinead Cusack as Miss Lavish and Timothy West as Mr Eager.

ITV director of drama Laura Mackie said: “Andrew Davies’ adaptation, as ever, captures the spirit of Forster’s most memorable novel, but delivers it in a fresh, engaging way for a modern audience.”
