Hollywood movie “The King & I” could soon be released on DVD, sources say.
The movie has been on the air for decades but has been largely absent from theaters, sources told ABC News.
The movie was made by screenwriter and producer Charles D. Ehrlichman and stars Michael Fassbender as Prince Andrew, Kate Winslet as Queen Elizabeth II and Josh Brolin as Prince Charles.
The film tells the story of a prince named King Andrew who must protect the kingdom from a nefarious plot.
A lot of people think that King Andrew is the future king of England.
But the movie has long been rumored to be based on the real-life Prince Charles, who in the early 1900s was married to a woman who also married an American, a story that eventually led to his untimely death.
The King &I was filmed in the 1930s and 1940s and features plenty of memorable music, including “Auld Lang Syne.”
The movie premiered on HBO in 2013, and the show has been renewed for a second season.
Duke Ellington was among the actors that attended a press conference last week at the Capitol, where the movie was being released, to talk about his role as Prince Philip in the movie.
Ellingoff told reporters that he was asked to join the press conference because he was in the studio when the movie premiered and said he was happy to be on set.
He said he has a lot of time to reflect on the role.
Ellington said he had an incredible time on the set.
“We all had a great time, it was a really great time,” Ellingon said.
He said the story behind the film is important to him.
“It’s a big part of my life.
It’s a part of the history of my family and my country.
I’m very grateful for the opportunity and for the fans who have been very supportive,” Elledton added.
