Gina Wilhelm Actress -Helen Mirren at the Movies
Helen Mirren is keeping busy these days. She’s about to appear in “State of Play,” starring Russell Crowe.
She likens the films to the Hollywood thrillers of the ’70s. It’s based on the 2003 British miniseries by the same name. In it, she plays Crowe’s newspaper-editor boss.
She takes over the role played on TV by Bill Nighy.
In addition to that, she’s currently working on the movies “The Debt” and a remake of Israeli film “Hahov.”
She’s also wrapped filming on “Love Ranch,” “The Last Station,” and “The Tempest.”
For “The Tempest,” directed by Julie Taymor, Mirren will play Prospero-or rather, Prospera.
In all other respects, she says, it’s a very traditional take on the story.
