Well, we’re in a world of need for content. And so content has been provided via two talented Australians, Joel Edgerton and David Michod. They’ve made “The King,” which seems like it’s based on Shakespeare’s “Henry V” although there’s no mention of the Bard’s name in the press release.
The two Aussies are featuring big movie names for a young audience– Timothee Chalamet and Robert Pattinson. Also Lily Rose Depp, the daughter of Johnny, and top tier actors Ben Mendelsohn (Australia, too) and Brit Sean Harris. The latter isn’t known in the US, but wins awards in the UK. He’s very…eccentric.
“The King” is coming to Netflix sometime this fall, and a few theaters.
