OH MY! *takes a deep breath*
The sequel to ELIZABETH, ELIZABETH: THE GOLDEN AGE, has finally been screened at the Toronto International Film Festival. Aside from the return of Cate Blanchett as the indefatigable Queen Elizabeth I, Clive Owens stars as Sir Walter Raleigh and oh, wow, wow, wow! Samantha Morton as – drums roll – Mary Queen of Scots! This sequel picks up where ELIZABETH left off and will feature the highlights of the rest of her reign.
Same director, Shekhar Kapur, who has only 9 films to his name (2 remain unreleased). So sad though that nobody is playing Cecil in this sequel as his character was very important during QEI’s reign.
Anyway, I am dying of anticipation.
