Having found critical acclaim with his directorial debut "Coriolanus" last year, Ralph Fiennes has been determined not to follow fellow Brit actors Gary Oldman and Tim Roth in letting years pass before he helms another picture. Even before his first picture was in theaters, Fiennes was planning his follow-up: an adaptation of Claire Tomalin's "The Invisible Woman," which tells the story of the relationship between author Charles Dickens and Nelly Ternan, the much-younger actress who became his lifelong mistress.

Fiennes Jones The Invisible Woman

Having found critical acclaim with his directorial debut "Coriolanus" last year, Ralph Fiennes has been determined not to follow fellow Brit actors Gary Oldman and Tim Roth in letting years pass before he helms another picture. Even before his first picture was in theaters, Fiennes was planning his follow-up: an adaptation of Claire Tomalin's "The Invisible Woman," which tells the story of the relationship between author Charles Dickens and Nelly Ternan, the much younger actress who became his lifelong mistress.

Penned by Abi Morgan ("Shame," "The Iron Lady"), shooting is underway, and now Empire has the first look at the film, with new stills of Fiennes as Dickens, and "Like Crazy" star Felicity Jones as Ternan. The cast also includes Kristin Scott-Thomas, as Ternan's mother, Tom Hollander as fellow novelist Wilkie Collins, and Michelle Fairley (Catelyn Stark in "Game Of Thrones") as Collins' common-law wife, and while it was hoped that the film might be in theaters before the end of the year, to tie in with the 200th anniversary of Dickens' birth, 2013 is looking more likely at this stage. Take a look at the full images below.
