Elizabeth: The Golden Age
Shekhar Kapur & Cate Blanchett are reteaming for a sequel of their 1998 film Elizabeth. Cate will once again play the Queen.
The film, "Elizabeth: The Golden Age," will detail the Tudor monarch's tempestuous relationship with Raleigh and suggest that Elizabeth was infatuated with the courtier and adventurer. There's ample evidence to suggest that she was jealous of his relationships with other women and he was thrown in the Tower for a time when it emerged that he had seduced one of her ladies in waiting.
Clive Owen looks likely to play the role of Sir Walter Raleigh. Jeremy Irons & Hugh Dancy are also in talks to join the cast. The film is shooting in Lithuania and will continue production till the end of the year.
