Although Katherine Heigl is gaining some steam, the queen of the romantic comedy, Kate Hudson, is stirring up a new project. This time, however, there is some major talent behind the entry, as In the Loop actor Peter Capaldi is set to helm the feature, titled Born to Be King.
The Hollywood Reporter has more details on the project, which is also written by Capaldi and is set to be shopped around on the American Film Market. Ewan McGregor is attached to for the male lead role in the project, which sees him mistaken as a movie star when he’s actually just a film extra. Hudson will play a Hollywood leading lady who is at odds with her current co-star and beings to develop a relationship with McGregor’s character.
I’m staring to get some The Artist vibes here, only the reverse relationship — which should make this film a hot commodity. With so many recent films diving into the actual world of filmmaking perhaps we’ll see this come to screen sooner rather than later. While Hudson’s recent career choices haven’t been my cup of tea, McGregor is consistently charismatic so I look forward to him popping up here.
Production is aiming for a January start at Pinewood Studios in the UK.

There is no room for rushed judgement or quick-witted observations; Bresson makes Serious Art, as opposed to Hollywood directors who do not. There are the key phrases to […]
