    Not much is known yet about the plot of the movie or what role exactly the star will play.

    However, according to Deadline, the female-driven thriller is being directed by Ingrid Goes West’s Matt Spicer.

    Academy Award winner Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher’s Red Wagon Entertainment will produce. 

    This news comes after production for Bridgerton was seen getting underway at the historic Old Naval College at the University of Greenwich in May, with the cast back on set.

    Bridgerton is Netflix’s most-watched series ever, as more than 82million households tuned in to watch after its release on Christmas Day last year.  

    The show turned Phoebe, who stars as a leading role alongside Regé-Jean Page’s character the Duke of Hastings, into a household name – and while she has been confirmed to return, her co-star Page will not. 

    The actor, who became a fan favourite for his portrayal of the Duke, confirmed his shock exit in April. 

    Phoebe has since addressed Page leaving and confessed it had put a ‘spanner’ in the works.

    Speaking on Variety’s Awards Circuit podcast last month, she revealed: ‘I knew but yeah, I guess it is a spanner… but again, the show centres around the Bridgertons and there are eight books.’  

    Phoebe continued: ‘I think maybe the fans of the books were more aware of that happening than the fans of the show. I think fans of the books know that every episode is about a different sibling.’

    She reminded fans of the series that the second instalment of the period drama was always set to see Anthony Bridgerton – played by Jonathan Bailey – take centre stage. 

    His quest to find love and marry will be the main focus of the new series, with Phoebe adding: ‘We’re very much passing the baton. Obviously it’s sad to see [Page] go, but I’m looking forward to being reunited with my family.’ 

    Her comments came as Page discussed the pair’s steamy sex scenes in the show and he admitted that he found it ‘overwhelming’ to see them play out onscreen.

     ‘No one was sufficiently prepared. I wasn’t sufficiently prepared, and I was there,’ he told The Hollywood Reporter. 

    ‘I think people were grateful for the intensity of the romantic aspects of Bridgerton. I’m not sure how grateful I was to watch it for myself,’ he joked. 

    ‘It was overwhelming. But I think people were looking to be overwhelmed.’ 

    He also addressed his Bridgerton exit and insisted he wasn’t worried about leaving the show as his character not returning was ‘what was meant’. 

    What he did fear, however, was ‘the unknown’ and likened leaving the show to graduating from high school. 

    Page confessed that on announcing his departure he had to leave his phone on the other side of the room, as he didn’t want to see the public’s immediate reaction.

    Season two will see Sex Education star Simone Ashely join the cast.
