Ewan McGregor NOT Playing in Madonna's New Movie


Ewan McGregor


Representative of Ewan McGregor has dismissed report mentioning that the actor will tackle the role of British royal King Edward VIII in Madonna's film 'W.E.'.

Ewan McGregor's representative has shot down reports the Scottish actor is set to play the lead in Madonna's new movie about late British royal King Edward VIII. The "Material Girl" is stepping behind the camera to direct a historical drama based on the former King, who abdicated in 1936 so he could marry twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson.

The "Trainspotting" star was reported to have signed up to play the lead in the upcoming movie. But now a spokesperson for the actor has dismissed the claims, telling Gossip Cop that McGregor is "not doing" the film.

Ewan McGregor's involvement in Madonna's "W.E." first swirled after Perez Hilton reported the story. The blogger wrote, "McGregor will play Edward VIII who abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry American divorcee Wallis Simpson. We absolutely adore her as a musical artist, but we�re not holding our breath for a hit film� But maybe she�ll prove us wrong with these casting choices?"
