hile we are waiting to see Chris Pine
as a Scottish hero Robert the Bruce in Outlaw King
later this year, it seems Netflix
is preparing another royal project. THE KING
will star Oscar nominee Timothee Chalamet
as king Henry V! Tom Hiddleston, Jude Law, Kenneth Branagh and Laurence Olivier were just some of the actors who portrayed the king famous for the battle at Agincourt.
THE KING, directed by David Michod, will see Chalamet playing the king who, after his brother is killed in battle before his coronation, takes over the crown in the early 1400s. The reluctant ruler wears the crown at a time when England was near a war with France, and the empire is teetering. He rises to the occasion, admirably.
