For the film adaptation of the bestselling book Red, white and royal blue Amazon Prime Video found the best choice for the President of the United States: Uma Thurman†
Deadline reported it just a day after Prime Video and the series’ best-selling author announced the cast of the two main characters: Taylor Zakhar Perez and Nicholas Galitzine.
Red, white and royal blue will talk about Mexican-American Alex Claremont-Diaz (Perez), whose mother (Thurman) just won the presidential election. In this equivalent of the American crown prince, he finds a major obstacle: befriending his great English rival, Prince Henry (Galitzine). But this hatred quickly turns into something else entirely, jeopardizing the re-election of Alex’s mother.
Uma for President!’
Matthew López, the film’s director, expressed his enthusiasm for casting Thurman in a press release:
Lopez: “I’m thrilled to have Uma join us as President Claremont. Her intelligence, warmth and humor fit perfectly with the iconic character of Casey. I can’t wait to see her on our set of ‘The Oval Office'”†
Unfortunately, no release date has yet been announced for this film.
