Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton).
In addition to Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name, Lady Bird) and Golden Globe nominee Edgerton (Bright, Loving, The Great Gatsby), the cast also includes Sean Harris (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation, Macbeth), Golden Globe nominee Ben Mendelsohn (The Land of Steady Habits, Ready Player One, Bloodline), Robert Pattinson (Good Time, The Lost City of Z), Lily-Rose Depp (The Summoning, The Dancer), Tom Glynn-Carney (Dunkirk), and Thomasin Harcourt McKenzie (Leave No Trace).
Pattinson will be playing The Dauphin; Mendelsohn will be playing King Henry IV; Depp will be playing Princess Catherine; Harris will be playing William; Glynn-Carney will be playing Hotspur; and McKenzie will be playing Philippa.
The King was written by Joel Edgerton and Michôd. Academy Award-winning Plan B produce along with Porchlight Films’ Liz Watts (who produced the Michôd-directed Animal Kingdom and The Rover), Edgerton and Michôd.
