Ready Player One actress Olivia Cooke is seen playing 18th century social climber Becky Sharp in the first teaser for the seven-part adaptation of William Makepeace Thackeray's classic novel Vanity Fair.

Gwyneth Hughes wrote and James Strong directed the project, which is being produced by Mammoth Screen. Filmed in London and Budapest, the drama will air on ITV in the United Kingdom and via Amazon in the United States.

This week's preview clip shows Cooke as Sharp, wearing a long, red gown and sitting in a chair in a luxurious mansion. She has her foot on a globe and the words, "Their world, her rules," appear on the screen.

"Vanity Fair feels like the perfect classic to adapt for ITV, and Gwyneth Hughes' stunning scripts bring the novel to life in a way that will really connect with a modern audience. The question was always who would be our perfect Becky Sharp and that is undoubtedly Olivia Cooke!" the British network's Polly Hill said in a statement.
