Director Peter Kosminsky is considering casting Edward Cullen as Prince Harry in The Spare, a British royal family biopic. Twilight‘s Robert Pattinson is being considered for the major role.
Harry Potter‘s Rubert Grint and Pride and Prejudice‘s Rupert Friend are also in the running to play the wealthy redhead. The script is in the works, and once a lead has been selected, shooting in the UK and the Middle East will begin. Peter said,
“I feel a sense of compassion for the guy. His parents break up in the most spectacularly public way, his mother dies in the most tragic and, again, public way and everything is picked over.”
If Peter has such compassion for the motherless eligible bachelor, then he should do him justice by not casting Patsy as Prince Harry. I’d love for some unknown breakout actor, who would be much more believable, to score the role. Choosing Robert is like casting Oprah Winfrey as Amber Rose. Not exactly very convincing.
