Emily Blunt Crowned As "Young Victoria"

Young Victoria, The picture


Golden Globe-winning starlet Emily Blunt is plotted to play the title character in "The Young Victoria" under the direction of Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallee.

Stepping into the similar shoes of fellow actress Helen Mirren when she assumed a royal role in "The Queen", Emily Blunt has been appointed to portray the titular character in "The Young Victoria", a period biopic of the 19th century monarch produced by Initial Entertainment Group's Graham King and Oscar-winning filmmaker Martin Scorsese.

King was quoted to laud "The Devil Wears Prada" star as the one who is "perfect to play this feisty, passionate young woman who went on to have nine children with the love of her life, Prince Albert." Meanwhile, the film itself will center on the turbulent early years of Queen Victoria's reign and her marriage to the prince, who turns out to be her first cousin.

Directing matters have been entrusted into the hands of Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallee with Oscar-winning writer Julian Fellowes penning the script. Also set to produce is Duchess of York Sarah Ferguson, who introduced the project to King.
