Deadline is exclusively reporting that Billy Howle is the latest name to join the cast of Netflix’s epic period drama Outlaw King, based on Robert The Bruce.
While Robert The Bruce appeared in Mel Gibson’s Braveheart, this feature will focus on Robert The Bruce casting aside the comforts of his upbringing to stand up for his countrymen in a long campaign against the Brits, ruthlessly consolidated rule among the squabbling noble elite of Scotland and rallying forces to turn back Edward II’s armies to free Scotland.
Billy Howle (whose credits include Glue and Dunkirk) will be playing the role of the Prince of Wales who goes head to head with Robert The Bruce to secure the Scottish throne.
David Mackenzie is directing the project, with Chris Pine playing Robert the Bruce, Aaron Taylor-Johnson playing James Douglas and Florence Pugh also starring in the film. Gillian Berrie, Steve Golin and Richard Brown are serving as producers on the project.
