David Tennant - Mary Queen Of Scots

David Tennant - Mary, Queen Of Scots

David Tennant plays John Knox in the Josie Rourke movie directorial debut movie Mary Queen Of Scots.

Mary Queen Of Scots is a portrait of the early life of the charismatic Mary Stuart who became Queen Of France at 16 and a widow by her 18th birthday. The movie also explores Mary's relationship with Queen Elizabeth I.

John Knox was was a Scottish minister, theologian and writer who was a leader of the country's Reformation and was the founder of the Presbyterian Church of Scotland. In several interviews with Mary Queen Of Scots Knox admonished her for supporting Catholic practices and, when she was imprisoned for her alleged role in the murder of her husband Lord Darnley, Knox openly called for her execution. Originally one newspaper stated that David would play the character of Anthony Babington.

The press release stated that the two queens were 'rivals in power and love, and female regents in a masculine world. The two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth's sovereignty.'

Saoirse Ronan stars as Mary Stuart while Margot Robbie plays Elizabeth I. The cast includes Guy Pearce, Brendan Coyle, Martin Compston, Jack Lowden and Joe Alwin.

The world premiere date for Mary Queen Of Scots was Thursday 15th November when the movie closed the American Film Institute Festival. The closing night gala took place at the historic TCL Chinese Theatre in Hollywood, Los Angeles. David did not attend the premiere.

The movie will be released in the UK on Friday 18th January 2019 and in the US on Friday 7th December.

The UK and European premiere of Mary Queen Of Scots was on Monday 10th December in London.
It was held at Cineworld Cinema in Leicester Square and David Tennant attended.

Principal photography began on Monday 14th August 2017 in Edinburgh although David was not involved then as he was filming Season Two of Marvel's Jessica Jones.

Josie Rourke was the artistic director of Donmar Warehouse and directed David Tennant in the play Much Ado About Nothing in 2011.

The movie was produced by Focus Features in collaboration with Working Title. Focus Features will release Mary, Queen Of Scots in the US and Universal Pictures International (UPI) will distribute the film internationally.
