Olivia Colman To Play Queen ElizabethDepressingly for those of us in the U.K. who would like to throw off the yoke of our apparently-appointed-by-god inbred oppressors, royalty is big business at the moment. Between the enormous, Oscar-winning success of "The King's Speech," and the royal wedding last week, the Windsors are back, and there's more than one film project in the works at present. For instance, Dakota Fanning is attached to play the young Princess Margaret in the romantic-comedy "Girl's Night Out," although that won't move forward until after director Michael Hoffman is done with "Gambit."

Looking To Bring 'Morning Glory' Helmer Roger Mitchell On BoardFresh from his behind-the-camera debut with a modern reimagining of William Shakespeare's "Coriolanus," Ralph Fiennes is reportedly already circling his next project, an adaptation of George Orwell's "Burmese Days." The actor, though, is presumably eyeing it as a starring vehicle rather than a directing gig as he is also looking to bring "Morning Glory" helmer Roger Michell on board the project, which is being produced by Avram Ludwig with a script by "Fair Game" scribe John Henry Butterworth.
