McGregor Inked for Multiple Roles in Next Film


Currently featured on the big screen as Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars: Episode III, Ewan McGregor is set to star in his next film four times as he will play a 1930s Hollywood star, his stand-in and both of the 18th-century characters they play in the movie they’re shooting for director Peter Capaldi.

The film was written by Capaldi and is described by Variety as a multi-layered script, which deals with an epic pic being shot in the 1930s about the Jacobite rebellion of 1745, in which Scottish forces loyal to Bonnie Prince Charlie tried to overthrow their English rulers. When the star goes missing, the producers trick an unassuming extra into filling his shoes, with surprising results.

The currently unamed film is scheduled to shoot in the U.K. early next year.
