Her Royal Highness

Devil Wears Prada star Emily Blunt is on board to play a young Queen Victoria in a film aptly titled, The Young Victoria. Gosford Park scribe Julian Fellowes will be responsible for the screenplay which will chronicle the young royal's rise to power, the early turbulent years of her reign and her marriage to Prince Albert, reports Dark Horizons. No studio is yet attached to the project, but given the critical success of last year's The Queen, I'm sure someone will jump on it. Monarchy, it would seem, is cool again. -- Amy
