Casting News: The King's Speech

Stars Colin Firth and Geoffrey Rush had been set to star in The King's Speech alongside newly cast Helena Bonham Carter, Guy Pearce, Timothy Spall, and Michael Gambon.

The film follows King George VI, the father of the current Queen Elizabeth II as he assumes the title of King of England after his brother Edward formally relinquishes the title after involvement with an American divorce and socialite. Considered unfit by many because of a speech problem, George takes on linguistic help and forms a tight friendship with his new teacher as he rules Britain throughout tumultuous times that included World War II.
