Immediately after his Academy Award nomination two years ago for Get in touch with Me By Your Name, Timothée Chalamet seems to be headed for awards season as soon as once more in Netflix’s The King.
Directed by Animal Kingdom’s David Michôd, the film is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henriad (Henry IV, Element 1, Henry IV, Element two, and Henry V), and stars Chalamet in the lead function, with Joel Edgerton at his side as the infamous Falstaff. Possessing ascended to the English throne upon his father’s (Ben Mendelsohn) death, Henry (Chalamet) need to now deal with the political turmoil that accompanies any shifting of energy, and his new responsibilities as king.
Robert Pattinson also stars as Louis, a single of the sons of King Charles VI of France, with Lily-Rose Depp as Catherine, Henry’s wife. Also starring are Sean Harris as Michael Williams and Game of Thrones’ really personal Tommen, Dean-Charles Chapman, as Thomas, Henry’s brother.
The film will have its globe premiere at the Venice Film Festival on Sept. two, and hit Netflix quickly afterwards this fall.
