Dame Helen Mirren - Dame Helen Mirren To Bring New Queen Role To Cinemas

Dame Helen Mirren is heading to cinemas as Queen Elizabeth Ii for a second time after producers of her new London play agreed to film the production for the big screen.

The actress, who won an Oscar for her lead role in 2006 film The Queen, has reprised her role as Britain's monarch for a new theatre production called The Audience.

The West End play is currently in previews ahead of opening night on 5 March (13) and has already sold a massive £6.4 million ($4 million) in tickets, prompting producers to bring the play to cinemas so fans without seats won't be disappointed.

The play will be screened live from London's Gielgud Theatre on 13 June (13) and broadcast to cinemas around the U.K.

It will also be shown to international audiences, with screenings planned for the U.S., Canada, Australia and India, among others.
