London: Madonna’s movie about the life of Wallis Simpson will be released during the film awards season.
Harvey Weinstein, who recently acquired the rights to ‘W.E’, which is about the romance between King Edward VIII and American divorcee Simpson, has said that he wanted to give it a “prominent release date”.
“Madonna beautifully interweaves past and present in W.E,” the BBC quoted Weinstein as saying.
“It’s a very smart film, and a stunning feature directorial debut. I’m incredibly excited about this movie and I wanted to give it a prominent release date,” he added.
The film is set for its US premiere in December, putting it in line for Academy Awards consideration. And a wider release is also planned for the middle of January.
