As destined, Twilight heartthrob vampire Robert Pattinson will share the screen with Call Me By Your Name star Timothée Chalamet, the perfect celebrity crush mashup for people between the ages of 17 and 65.
All that and it’s a period piece drama, too! Deadline reports that Chamalet will play Henry V in the Netflix feature, The King, and Pattinson will star as French prince The Dauphin. Two royal hotties, storming the castle of our hearts. The film will be directed by David Michôd, and yes, it’s based on Shakespeare’s classics about Henry IV and V:
The plays take place before, during and after England’s military conflict with France at the famous Battle Of Agincourt in 1415, part of the ‘Hundred Years’ War’ between the two nations.
Joel Edgerton will play Falstaff, and Chalamet’s love interest/arranged-marriage wife, Princess Catherine, will be played by Lily-Rose Depp. This will be Chalamet’s first starring role since he made sweet love to that peach. May Pattinson give him the guidance he needs through the tempestuous waters of youthful fame.
