SUPERMODEL Cara Delevingne will play Margo Leadbetter in a big budget drama about the dark side of suburban self-sufficiency.
Director David Fincher is to remake the 1970s sitcom The Good Life about a man who tires of the rat race and decides to ruin the lives of everyone around him.
Delevingne will play Margo, the snobbish but kind-hearted neighbour, while her pathetic, lecherous husband Jerry will be played by Gary Oldman.
The part of vegetable growing villian Tom Good will be played by Ralph Feinnes and his brave but desperate wife Barbara will be played by Hillary Swank.
Fincher said: “This is not a comedy. We want to explore the unhinged psyche of a man who robbed his lovely wife of middle-class security and made a previously pleasant neighbourhood stink of pig shit and rotting goat meat.”
Delevingne is preparing for the role by standing in front of a mirror and repeating ‘well thank you very much Jerry’ in a darkly sarcastic voice.
