Martin Scorsese has been lined up to produce a new star-studded film covering the early life of 19th century British royal QUEEN VICTORIA. The Gangs of New York director is teaming up with THE DEPARTED producer Graham King to make the biopic, with Oscar winner Julian Fellowes writing the script. King admits working with Scorsese on a British film is a dream come true - and points out the monarch's early life has been largely ignored by film-makers. He says, "We all think we know Queen Victoria from the latter part of her life, but in fact she was an amazing, dynamic, romantic personality from a very early age that is largely unknown. "I had been searching for a British project for many years so am just thrilled to bring her story to life. And to do so in partnership with Marty is a special joy." Sarah Ferguson, DUCHESS OF YORK initially introduced King to the Queen Victoria project, which he later accepted.
