'CATHERINE THE GREAT'
JOSEPH QUINN TO PLAY THE IMPERIAL HEIR PRINCE PAUL
Yes, please! After Jason Clarke has been chosen to play Prince Grigory Potemkin the lover of Russian Empress CATHERINE THE GREAT in Sky's
and HBO's new historical epic mini series with Helen Mirren, our dearest Joseph Quinn, whom we fell in love with in Dickensian and the godawful Howards End, will play her son, heir and future emperor, Prince Paul!
|Shooting should begin this Autumn!|
The four part saga set in the most turbulent 18th century will follow the final years of her reign which lasted for more than three decades during which she made Russia bigger and more populated than ever. The series is written by Elizabeth's Nigel Williams and directed by The Crown's Philip Martin! Prince Paul hated his mother with passion as he felt neglected since she never saw in him the son she wanted to have. We will also watch Joseph Quinn next year in BBC's Les Miserables!
GETS HER OWN 1920'S BIOPIC!
Another period set saga is coming over from Studiocanal Australia! They will produce a movie on the queen of cosmetics Helena Rubinstein! As 'Deadline' reports, HELENA will chart the life of the revered Polish-American
businesswoman, art collector and philanthropist. It will focus on the late 1920s when she was at the height of her powers but had to choose between her empire and her family. She began her cosmetics business in Australia and her first Melbourne store was a forerunner to those in Paris, London and New York.
