Max Irons, Charles Dance, Elizabeth McGovern Join ‘Woman in Gold’

LONDON — “The White Queen” star Max Irons, “Game of Thrones” thesp Charles Dance, and Elizabeth McGovern from “Downton Abbey” have joined the cast of “Woman in Gold,” which is being produced by The Weinstein Company, BBC Films and Origin Pictures.

Other cast additions include Antje Traue (“Man of Steel”), Moritz Bleibtreu (“Kill Your Friends”) and Jonathan Pryce (“Pirates of the Caribbean” franchise).

Principal photography on “Woman in Gold” began on May 23 for eight weeks on location in the U.K., Austria and the U.S.

The cast includes Helen Mirren, Ryan Reynolds, Daniel Bruhl, Katie Holmes and Tatiana Maslany. The director is Simon Curtis, who helmed the Oscar-nominated “My Week With Marilyn.”

Playwright Alexi Kaye Campbell penned the screenplay. The film is being produced by David Thompson for Origin Pictures and Kris Thykier, executive produced by Harvey and Bob Weinstein for The Weinstein Company, and BBC Films’ Christine Langan.

U.S. distribution and international sales are being handled by The Weinstein Company.

The pic is the true story of one woman’s journey to reclaim her heritage and seek justice for what happened to her family.

Sixty years after she fled Vienna during World War II, an elderly Jewish woman, Maria Altmann, starts her journey to retrieve family possessions seized by the Nazis, among them Klimt’s painting “The Lady in Gold.”

Together with her young lawyer Randy Schoenberg, she embarks upon a battle which takes them all the way to the heart of the Austrian establishment and the U.S. Supreme Court.
