David Tennant - Mary, Queen Of Scots

David Tennant will play 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 will also explore 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 states 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 will play Elizabeth I. The cast includes Guy Pearce, Brendan Coyle, Martin Compston, Jack Lowden and Joe Alwin with a release date in the UK of Friday 14th September 2018, Sweden on Friday 5th October, Spain on Thursday 1st November, the US on Friday 2nd November and Germany on Thursday 15th November. Friday 2nd November 2018.

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

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

The movie is 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.
