A week before it hits U.S. theaters, "Me and Orson Welles" has rolled out a red carpet for premiere in another continent. On Wednesday evening, November 18, the cast members have been snapped coming to Vue West End Cinema in London to promote the film.
Donning a formal black-and-white outfit, Zac Efron was seen coming to the event without companion of his girlfriend Vanessa Hudgens. Also hitting the red carpet was the lead actress, Claire Danes, who wore a long black dress. The two then were seen taking a pose before entering the venue.
Some other cast members, including Christian McKay, Janie Dee, Kelly Reilly, and Megan Maczko, were also spotted attending the special screening event. Meanwhile, Hugh Dancy, Carmen Ejogo, Jools Holland, Hofit Golan, Ashley Taylor Dawson, and Karen McKay were among the celebrity guests that night.
"Me and Orson Welles" will open wide in the U.S. on November 25. Based on real theatrical history, the film is set in a whirlwind week in 1937 in New York City where 17-year-old Richard Samuels, played by Zac Efron, spends his days dreaming of the bright lights of Broadway. One day, he gets his big break when Christian McKay's Orson Welles offers him to be part of his historic staging of Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.
Later, he meets production assistant Claire Danes' Sonja Jones, who will become his love interest. But with Welles' womanizing taking priority over rehearsals, chaos and calamity mark the production from the start. Before long, opening night has arrived and Richard will discover the terrible secrets of show business. The movie's script is penned by Holly Gent Palmo alongside Vincent Palmo Jr., while Richard Linklater serves as the helmer.
