Scottish actor Ewan McGregor has landed the lead role in Madonna's movie about late British royal KING EDWARD VIII, according to reports.
The Material Girl is stepping behind the camera for a second time to direct a historical drama based on the former King, who abdicated in 1936 so he could marry twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson.
And the Trainspotting actor is set to play Edward in the upcoming movie, reports Screen Daily.
MCGregor will join Vera Farmiga, who is slated to play Simpson, as well as Abbie Cornish, who has also been linked to the project.
Madonna made her directorial debut in 2008 with Filth and Wisdom, which was panned by critics.
