From the channel that brought you such films as “My Stepson, My Lover,” “Baby Monitor: Sound of Fear” and the 1989 classic “Do You Know the Muffin Man?” comes the most anticipated made-for-TV movie of the year: one about Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding.
Lifetime has just announced plans to shoot a movie about the royal couple’s famous romance, thereby indulging many a fan.
Lifetime’s official description reports that the film “chronicles the history of William and Kate — from the moment the two students met at Scotland's prestigious University of St. Andrews, through the ups and downs of their nine-year courtship complicated by social and royal family pressures, and intense global media attention surrounding their storybook nuptials.”
According to E!, pretty boy actor Nico Evers-Swindell (who had bit roles in “Guiding Light” and "Law & Order”) is reportedly playing the groom, while the role of Princes Charles will be played by Ben Cross of “Star Trek.” As for the lovely Kate? The role remains open. But we know one actress who could be an easy shoo-in (and is presumably free these days): Katie Holmes.
