McGregor, Hudson Join Capaldi’s “King”

Ewan McGregor has signed on to star and Kate Hudson is in negotiations to join Peter Capaldi’s mistaken-identity rom-com “Born to Be King” at Indomina Releasing says THR.

The story revolves around a film extra (McGregor) who has an uncanny resemblance to a movie star and a Hollywood starlet (Hudson) who’s at war with her co-star and begins to fall for the extra.

Capaldi, best known for playing the foul-mouthed Malcolm Tucker in the BBC sitcom “The Thick of It”, also wrote the screenplay. Alexandra Stone and Dan Lupovitz will produce and shooting kicks off in January at Pinewood Studios in the UK.
