Movie Casting News: Rosamund Pike in talks to star with David Oyelowo in 'A United Kingdom' film!

More movie projects (this is the 7th one with other titles already lined up: HHHH, The Spark, The Deep Blue Good-by with Christian Bale, The Mountain Between Us, and The Bends. Plus the long in-development French Window) is lining up for on-demand Oscar Nominee Gone Girl's Rosamund Pike (photo by Getty Images with David Oyelowo at Jack Reacher premiere and press interview image via movieweb), as another movie in the works, A United Kingdom, which she is currently in talks and considering signing on to and join fellow Oscar Nominee Selma's David Oyelowo (who previously co-starred with Ros in 2012's Jack Reacher with Tom Cruise). The film is based on a true story of Prince Seretse Khama of Bostwana, who caused an international scandal when he married Ruth Williams, a white woman from London in 1940s. This looks interesting, I hope Ros signs on for this movie. If she does, I'm sure she'll be playing the female lead Ruth Williams.

Rosamund Pike In Talks To Join David Oyelowo In ‘A United Kingdom’ : Cannes

EXCLUSIVE– Rosamund Pike is in talks to board David Oyelowo’s passion project A United Kingdom, Deadline has learned. No deal has been done yet and there are still details to iron out but there is strong interest from both sides to make this work.

A United Kingdom, which Pathe is financing, tells the true story of Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana, who caused an international stir when he married Ruth Williams, a white woman from London in the 1940’s. The much-in-demand Pike would play the role of the royal’s wife-to-be should the deal close. The interracial union was opposed by both their families, as well as the British government, the Tribal elders of Botswana and the apartheid government of South Africa. The couple would not be denied, overcoming huge obstacles to be together, including exile and the abdication of the throne. Their son, Ian Khama, is currently the democratically elected president of Botswana and the family is cooperating with the project. Full article here. (Deadline)
