Stephen Frears Hits All the Right Notes with Florence Foster Jenkins

19 August 2016 11:21 AM, PDT | www.culturecatch.com | See recent CultureCatch news »

Totally relaxed in his Ritz-Carleton suite on Central Park South, his arms spread wide on a rather tasteful couch, Stephen Frears held court not at all like the monarch in his biggest success, The Queen, (2006). His press conference for his latest effort, Florence Foster Jenkins, will take place one hour later with about 40 journalists in attendance.

Judi Dench to reprise Queen Victoria role in Stephen Frears' 'Victoria and Abdul'

17 June 2016 4:11 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

Working Title Films to make Victoria and Abdul; Focus Features, Universal to distribute.

Nearly 20 years after her Oscar-nominated and BAFTA-winning performance as Queen Victoria in Mrs Brown, Dame Judi Dench is to return to the role for a film directed by Stephen Frears.

Victoria and Abdul will tell the true story of an unexpected friendship in the later years of Queen Victoria’s reign.

Working Title Films will make the film, set to go into production this year for a 2017 release, to which Focus Features will hold worldwide rights.

Focus will release the movie domestically and Universal Pictures International will distribute the film around the world. Victoria and Abdul is being co-financed by Focus in association with BBC Films.

The screenplay is by Lee Hall, an Academy Award nominee and Tony Award winner for Billy Elliot; and is based on Shrabani Basu’s book Victoria & Abdul: The True Story of the Queen’s Closest Confidant.
