Monstersandcritics.com reports HBC is in negotiations to play Britain's Queen Mother in The King's Speech, directed by Tom Hooper. Pirates of the Caribbean star, Geoffrey Rush, and actor Colin Firth are also attached to the project.
Firth says, "The film takes place before she took on the cuddly Queen Mum mantle, when she was much younger, making Helena ideal. This was when her husband - then the Duke of York - was going through the Abdication crisis and had to prepare himself for public speaking."
The movie should be filmed in London late this year and released late in 2010.
More information will be posted when it's released!
