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 2018 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 was released in the UK on Friday 18th January 2019 after its initial release in the US on Friday 7th December 2018.

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) distribute the film internationally.

The movie was released on DVD, Blu-ray and digital download in the US in February 2019 and will be released in the same formats in the UK in May 2019.

December 2018
BehindTheLensOnline reports that director Josie Rourke has some great things to say about David Tennant in Mary Queen Of Scots movie.
Josie's comments included:
'This is a fun fact, David is the son of a Scottish minister. And if you are Scottish, you know exactly who John Knox is. Heís also the key figure in Scottish reformation. People have gone, ďOh my God, that gigantic beard, whatís that?Ē Iím like, ďGoogle John Knox.Ē Thatís exactly what the guy looked like.'
She also said:
'The other amazing thing about David, and heís such a great Shakespearian actor as well, is that probably the majority of what he says in the film is not Beau Willimonís writing, itís the actual words of John Knox. Heís able to make that stuff, as he does when he plays Shakespeare roles, feel freshly minted and bring it into the present. I do think, actually, thatís one of the reasons why heís so chilling. To me certainly, heís speaking with the authority of that man who looked Mary Queen of Scots in the eye and challenged her like that. Mary said she feared John Knox more than she feared all of the armies of Europe.' Updated 20/12
