Casting for Princess Elizabeth will be announced shortly. Pic, which begins lensing at the end of the year, is produced by Ecosse’s Robert Bernstein and Douglas Rae, who have a longstanding relationship with HanWay.

The two companies collaborated on “Brideshead Revisited,” “Becoming Jane,” “Nowhere Boy” and Andrea Arnold’s upcoming adaptation of “Wuthering Heights.”

HanWay’s Berlin Film Festival slate includes David Cronenberg’s “A Dangerous Mind,” produced by Jeremy Thomas; Wim Wenders’ “Pina,” which is screening out of competition; Kevin Macdonald and Ridley Scott’s Sundance debut “Life in a Day,” which screens in the Panorama section; Steve McQueen’s second directorial effort, “Shame,” toplining Michael Fassbender and Carey Mulligan; and Arnold’s “Wuthering Heights.”
