Further Casting news.

I recently blabbed on the new film about Marilyn Monroe & Laurence Olivier and the making of “The Prince And The Showgirl”.

The new film “My Week With Marilyn” has some new additions to the cast, it is shaping up to be a fine ensemble of British actors indeed.

Joining Michelle Williams (Marilyn), Kenneth Branagh (Olivier) and Judi Dench (Sybil Thorndike) are Eddie Redmayne as Colin Clark the PA on who’s diary the film is based. Redmayne’s star is in on the rise at the moment. He won the Tony earlier this year for featured actor in “Red”, and is starring in the new Steven Spielberg adaptation of the acclaimed West End hit “The War Horse”. Emma Watson (Harry Potter’s delightful witch) is in negotations to play a wardrobe mistress who dates Clark. Others include Sir Derek Jacobi, Zoe Wanamaker and Dominic Cooper (Mamma Mia).

I am very excited about this film, with such a great cast it will be irresistible.
