Kapur Makes Blanchett Queen Again

Indian director SHEKHAR KAPUR is ecstatic about his plans for a sequel to ELIZABETH with Hollywood beauty CATE BLANCHETT reprising her OSCAR-nominated role as the virgin Queen of Britain.

The film's makers are using the working title GOLDEN AGE for the movie which focuses on the middle years of the controversial royal's reign - she sat on the throne from 1558 - 1603.

The 58-year-old legend says, "It is about the battle between Elizabeth's life as a monarch and her personal life. It ends in the destruction of the Spanish Armada on the larger level when the English navy defeated the Spanish invasion fleet in the English Channel in 1588."

A start date has yet to be set because of the commitments of director and star - according to British film magazine EMPIRE.
