News about Madonna’s upcoming movie, WE…
Natalie Dormer, 28, has been casted to portray Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother in a film about the Edward VIII abdication crisis.
According to English newspaper the Telegraph, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother is to be subjected to a radical and controversial portrayal by Madonna.
She is to be portrayed as a highly negative influence in W.E., which is sympathetic to Wallis Simpson, the twice-divorced American socialite, who caused a constitutional dilemma when the king declared his desire to marry her.
Natalie Dormer explained…
“This country tends to remember the Queen Mother as a rather wrinkly 97 year-old, but I am playing her when she was quite an enchanting, engaging twenty and thirtysomething.
She was quite a savage and savvy game player. www.absolumentmadonna.fr
She never really spoke in public - she left it up to her husband, the king, and, therefore, even if she was a dominant force in the marriage, and a rock and forward thinker, she always let the king take the lead.
She never took any credit for it.”
Madonna’s film has already undergone several changes. The latest is that American actress Margo Stilley has left.
She told Britain’s Sunday Telegraph…
“I had the role, but we had artistic differences.
She [Madonna] is really something.
I wish the cast luck because they are all really talented.”
The film, which stars Abbie Cornish and James D’Arcy, is slated for a 2011 release.
