Robert Pattinson and Lily-Rose Depp join Netflix’s Henry V


A group of actors with chiseled jawlines and intriguing eyes are rounding out the cast for the upcoming Netflix adaptation of Henry V.

Robert Pattinson and Lily-Rose Depp are joining Timothée Chalamet to complete the cast of The King. The film will be a Netflix movie adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Henry IV (parts 1 and 2) and Henry V plays.

If you’re still obsessed with Oscar-nominee Chalamet from his role in the Oscar-nominated film Call Me By Your Name, get ready for more swoon-worthy scenes. Chalamet is set to play young Hal, a prince who inherits the throne. He will learn what it takes to become a king by his good friend Falstaff, played by Joel Edgerton (Red Sparrow).

Pattinson, known for the Twilight and Harry Potter franchises, will play Dauphin of France. Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis’ daughter, Lily-Rose, will portray Princess Catherine.

The King joins a long list of Henry V film adaptation because you can never have enough of Shakespeare. Most recently you may remember seeing Tom Hiddleston portraying King Henry V of England. His 2012 film was the fourth film in BBC’s The Hollow Crown series. Laurence Olivier and Kenneth Branagh have also played the king on screen.

Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) rounds out The King ensemble as King Henry IV. The script comes from Edgerton and director David Michôd (War Machine).
