Girls’ Night Out
is an upcoming royal romantic fairytale that will be directed by Michael Hoffman
and it looks that previously attached Dakota Fanning
will have nothing to do with it.
According to the latest reports, Juno Temple
is now on board to star as Princess Margaret while Alexandra Roach
will portray her sister Princess Elizabeth (yes, that’s the current Queen Elizabeth II).
The movie is set on V.E. day in 1945 and sees princesses allowed out from Buckingham Palace for one night to join in the huge celebrations. What’s also interesting about the whole thing is that the story is actually based on real events in the British capital in the immediate aftermath of the end of WW2 in Europe.
Trevor De Silva
wrote the script and Lionsgate have pre-bought U.K. rights for the movie which is set to begin production this fall.
