Andrew Scott looked dapper on the set of Ripley in Rome on Friday as he filmed scenes for the upcoming Showtime series.

The actor, 45, was dressed in a grey suit and a checked coat in the same shade while holding a plastic face shield to protect himself and others from coronavirus between takes.

Irish star Andrew, who takes the lead role, sat at a table and read a newspaper as he filmed a scene outside a cafe in a typical Italian piazza.

Cast and crew as well as technical equipment could be seen nearby Andrew as he worked. 

Andrew plays the iconic Tom Ripley – the arch conman previously played to aplomb by Matt Damon in the hit 1999 film –  in the new Showtime series while Dakota Fanning portrays Marge Sherwood. 

The character of Tom Ripley was created by late novelist Patricia Highsmith and played a defining role through five of her novels and several subsequent film adaptations.

In the new series, set in the 1960s, Ripley is hired by a wealthy New Yorker to travel to Italy to convince his wayward son Dickie Greenleaf to return home.

But along the way, he starts to weave a complex web of deceit with murderous consequences.  

Dickie’s Venice based American girlfriend – played by Dakota – will slowly suspect Ripley’s motives when he shows up looking for him.

The drama is being adapted from Highsmith’s novels by Schindler’s List writer Steve Zaillan.

The 1999 film The Talented Mr. Ripley, directed by the late Anthony Minghella, starred Matt Damon as Tom Ripley with Gwyneth Paltrow as Marge and Jude Law as doomed jazz musician Dickie. 

Ripley’s US release date in the USA is confirmed to be 2022. A UK release is to be announced.
