Ewan McGregor tends to have his best success with rom coms, and that where he’s headed back to as he has joined the cast of the upcoming film industry set romantic comedy Born to Be King, with Kate Hudson in talks to star as well, according to Variety.
Peter Capaldi, best known as an actor in the like of The Thick Of It but who’s also helmed the likes of Strictly Sinatra, will direct from his own original screenplay. The story follows a Hollywood extra (McGregor) who bares an uncanny resemblance to a big time star. Kate Hudson will play a starlet embroiled in a war with one of her co-stars.
The film is scheduled to shoot this January at Pinewood Studios.
