Two of Derbyshire's best known stately homes could be used in a new film about one of England's most colourful women.
The imposing Chatsworth House could feature in the film
The movie, called The Duchess, would tell the story of 18th Century socialite Georgiana Cavendish, who became the Duchess of Devonshire.
An ancestor of Diana, Princess of Wales, she was famous for her beauty and scandalous private life.
Scenes could be shot at Kedleston Hall and Chatsworth in September and October and would require hundreds of extras.
Nick Shuttleworth, who is working on the film, said the script called for large scale ballroom and crowd scenes.
EM Media, which supports the development of films in the region, said such productions brought in a lot of money to the area.
Producers have not yet confirmed who will star in the film.
