The Lost King

Alison Peebles, Bruce Fummey and Simon Donaldson are currently filming  THE LOST KING directed by Stephen Frears, co-written by Jeff Pope and Steve Coogan and produced by Baby Cow.

The Lost King is based on the true story of how Richard III’s grave was discovered below a non-descript council-owned car park in Leicester a decade ago. The movie focuses on the story of Philippa Langley, the amateur historian and secretary of the Scottish branch of the Richard III Society whose passion and drive pushed the project forward – despite objection and ridicule from historians and academics. The king, killed in the Battle of Bosworth in 1485, was successfully exhumed in 2012.

Paddington and Made In Dagenham star Sally Hawkins will play Langley, with Steve Coogan taking on the role of her husband.
