The BBC has released the first image from its forthcoming star-studded adaptation of King Lear.
The Chichester production of King Lear starring Sir Ian McKellen looks like it will transfer to London this summer.
BBC Two is lining up some of the best British acting talent for a new film of King Lear.
The film will see Anthony Hopkins and Emma Thompson reunite once again. They’ll be joined by the likes of Andrew Scott and Jim Broadbent.
Ian McKellen will play King Lear on stage in Chichester later this year.
