Victoria Gets A Prince Albert

British thesp Rupert Friend (“Pride & Prejudice,” “The Libertine”) has been cast as Prince Albert in the historical drama “The Young Victoria” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story follows the romance and marriage of Queen Victoria (Emily Blunt) to her first cousin Albert during her tumultuous 19th-century British reign.

Jean-Marc Vallee directs the film, produced by Graham King and Martin Scorsese from a screenplay by Julian Fellowes, which begins shooting next month in the UK.
