The biographical drama sees Sex Education star Gillian Anderson transform into the journalist who sat down the Duke of York for a televised chat about his relationship with convicted paedophile Jeffrey Epstein and allegations of sexual assault of a minor.
Prince Andrew denied the claims and settled the case with accuser Virginia Giuffre (who was 17 at the time of the alleged incidents) out of court in 2022 for £12 million.
The newly released stills from the film includes a shot of Anderson as Maitlis, as well as one of The Diplomat star Rufus Sewell sporting white hair to play Prince Andrew.
Billie Piper sits at a desk as former Newsnight producer Sam McAlister, whose book Scoops: Behind the Scenes of the BBC's Most Shocking Interviews inspired the movie.
Another image shows Crossfire's Keeley Hawes as Prince Andrew's former secretary Amanda Thirsk, surrounded by a photographer and a filmmaker as she enters what looks like a royal palace room.
"Your first look at Scoop. A new film inspired by Prince Andrew's infamous Newsnight interview. Starring Gillian Anderson, Keeley Hawes, Billie Piper and Rufus Sewell," Netflix posted on Twitter/X today (February 5).
Directed by Philip Martin from a script by Peter Moffat, Scoop also stars Anderson's Sex Education co-star Connor Swindells as Jae Donnelly, Atonement's Romola Garai as Esme Wren and The Great's Charity Wakefield as Princess Beatrice.
Paul Popplewell, Lia Williams and Theresa Godly feature in supporting roles.
The same interview will be the subject of another adaptation set to come to Prime Video soon.
A release date for Scoop is yet to be announced.
