First look: The Lost King

The first image from a new film about the 2012 discovery of King Richard III’s remains has been released.

The Lost King stars Sally Hawkins as Philippa Langley, the woman who uncovered the remains which had been lost for 500 years.

An amateur historian, Langley spent years researching and searching for the ruins, in spite of skepticism from friends, family and academics.

Hawkins stars alongside Steve Coogan, who plays Philippa’s husband John, and Harry Lloyd as King Richard III. 

Stephen Frears is directing the film which is currently in post production.
