Madonna wants to direct a movie about King Edward VIII and is hoping the former Doctor will play the ex-monarch.
Madge was originally planning to star in the movie herself as Wallis, because she saw similarities between herself and the character.
But she is now in talks with Up In The Air star Vera Farmiga, 36, to take the role instead.
The part of King Edward hasn’t yet been cast but a source said: “Madonna’s interest in directing a drama was first revealed a year ago.
“She put it on hold while going through her divorce but is really keen to get into directing again and has her eye on David, having loved his work on Doctor Who.”
