Two of the most talented young actors in Hollywood are starring in the same movie together.
Netflix’s ‘The King‘ stars both Robert Pattinson and Timothee Chalamet, alongside Joel Edgerton, Lily-Rose Depp and Ben Mendelsohn.
As you can see, that’s a pretty impressive cast right there.
Based on literary icon William Shakespeare’s plays Henry IV Part 1, Henry Part 2, and Henry V, The King is a modern-day Shakespearean adaptation from the screenwriting duo Michod and Golden Globe nominee Joel Edgerton, who’ve worked together on Animal Kingdom.
It will follow the story of Hal, a wayward prince, who ascends to the English throne upon his father’s death, and must navigate the palace snake pit, and inherited war and chaos.
The film has already premiered at a few festivals, and has been receiving mostly positive reviews. No one is going crazy over the film, though, which might hurt its awards season chances.
The King will be released around the world on Netflix on November 1, 2019.
