Jacqueline Bisset has been cast as the female lead in the independent period drama “Peter and John.”

Director Jay Craven begins filming later this month in Nantucket for Kingdom County Prods.

“Peter and John” is based on the 1887 Guy de Maupassant novel “Pierre et Jean,” which recounts the story of a French family whose lives are changed when a deceased family friend leaves his estate to one of the sons.

Bisset won the Golden Globe in January for best supporting actress in a TV miniseries for “Dancing on the Edge.” She will be seen next in director Abel Ferrara’s “Welcome to New York,” starring opposite Gerard Depardieu in the drama based on the rise and fall of Dominique Strauss-Kahn.
