Martin Scorsese and Graham King Yield to "The Young Victoria"

Young Victoria, The picture


Martin Scorsese and "The Departed" producer Graham King will join forces once again to produce "The Young Victoria", a biopic about Queen Victoria of the United Kingdom.

Apparently wanting to follow the recent critical success of both "The Queen" and "The Last King of Scotland", Martin Scorsese is re-teaming up with Initial Entertainment Group's Graham King to produce "The Young Victoria", a biographical feature of Queen Victoria, who was also the first Empress of India during her reign in British Empire.

Scorsese has been known to have a well-established relationship with King, who produced several of his directorial works like "The Departed", "The Aviator", and "Gangs of New York."

The project, introduced to King by Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, will center on the first, often turbulent, years of the queen's rule plus her legendary romance and marriage to Prince Albert. Her reign is known to be the longest in the history of the United Kingdom, ruling for 63 years until her death in 1901.

Attached to direct is Canadian helmer Jean Marc Vallee with script being penned by Academy Award-winning screenwriter Julian Fellowes. Apart from Scorsese and King, Ferguson is also set to produce alongside Tim Headington.
