Rae, Bernstein to pen pic

LONDON — Ecosse Films (“Mrs. Brown”) has struck a deal with FilmFour to develop a movie about the marriage between Tudor monarch Henry VIII and his second wife Anne Boleyn.

“Henry and Anne” is being written by Allan Scott and will be exec produced by Ecosse’s Douglas Rae and Robert Bernstein. No director is yet attached.

Henry broke with the Catholic Church in order to divorce his first wife and marry Anne, but he ended up having her beheaded for adultery.

The producers describe their project as “a visceral look at power and love,” taking “a distinctly modern slant on the marriage, which started with excommunication and ended with execution.”
