MICHELLE WILLIAMS TO LEAD FIREBRAND 16TH CENTURY SET MOVIE AS HENRY VIII'S LAST QUEEN KATHERINE PARR!

 MICHELLE WILLIAMS TO LEAD 
FIREBRAND AS KATHERINE PARR
The shooting will start in early 2022
I cannot remember if we have seen her before in a costume drama, but Screen Daily reports today straight from Cannes that Michelle Williams will take the lead role in Karim Ainouz' FIREBRAND historical movie about Katherine Parr, the last of King Henry VIII's six wives. Jessica and Henrietta Ashworth are currently writing the script for this historical psychological horror film set at the dangerous Tudor court; a story of intrigue, agency and survival which tells how Katherine Parr outlasted Henry VIII’s brutal reign. 
 
  Kathe- rine Parr previously beautifully played by gorgeous Joely Richardson in ultra popular The Tudors series, was the queen of England and Ireland for four years before Henry's death. She had four husbands herself and was involved in raising Henry's heir, future queen Elizabeth and his ill son as well. She even acted as a regent while Henry was on a campaign in France and would have become the ruler of the country if he died in battle. She was also the first woman to publish a book in England under her own name. After Henry's death she assumed the role of
The film will start shooting sometime next year in England
Elizabeth's guardian and continued with publishing books. She was allowed to keep the Crown Jewels and act as his official dowager queen. Half a year after Henry's death she married her fourth husband baron Thomas Seymour but she died just a few months after that at childbirth when she was only 36.

  1. Has Williams been in anything recently? I feel like I haven’t seen her in anything in ages. I do love anything focusing on The Tudors, so I’ll be watching for this one.

  2. She was in The Greatest Showman. Does that count as a costume drama? I do like Michelle Williams. I picture her being super sweet in real life.

    1. Nope, it does not count. We mean big gowns and codpieces.

  4. Historical movie? 😏 Yeah, you probably already know I won't be tuning in. 🤷‍♂️

    Plus, not really a fan of Michelle Williams, the actress. I am a fan of Michelle Williams, the singer. 😜

    1. I am kinda in the middle with her. I do not like her style, I do not always like her choice of roles, but I did see her performing great in some movies, I actually think she should have gotten an Oscar for Brokeback Mountain. But I am not a fan generally.
