Emma sure is busy! Emma will be collaborating with Rupert Everett and Colin Firth on an Oscar Wilde biopic. Everett will be playing Wilde in “The Happy Prince” he will direct the film and wrote the script as well. The script is said to be a comedy with tragic undertones. He was quoted describing the plot as,” the Irish playwright’s final days as he observes his own failure with ironic distance and humor.” Everett has been involved in many different Oscar Wilde projects over the years. Colin Firth has been cast as Reginald “Reggie” Turner, Wilde’s close friend. There is no word yet on what Emma’s part will be, but keep your eyes out for updates! Shooting of “The Happy Prince” is set for Summer 2013 in Germany.
Update: Well folks, it looks like we were all fooled again. Unfortunately, it looks like my information was incorrect. I did read more than one article and tried to get as much information as possible. It seems to be that Emily Watson is the one involved here and not our beloved Emma. There is not a lot of information out yet about “The Happy Prince” so we can all still hope!! Sorry for the confusion. Let this be lesson that no one is perfect. I will keep you posted if anything changes!
