Couldn't find a thread on this. Hope it's OK to post. Taken from Braveheart's Wikipedia page:

On February 9, 2018, a sequel titled Robert the Bruce was announced. The film will lead directly on from Braveheart and follow the widow Moira, portrayed by Anna Hutchison, and her family (portrayed by Gabriel Bateman and Talitha Bateman), who save Robert the Bruce, with Angus Macfadyen reprising his role from Braveheart. The cast will also include Jared Harris, Patrick Fugit, Zach McGowan, Emma Kenney, Diarmaid Murtagh, Seoras Wallace, Shane Coffey, Kevin McNally and Melora Walters. Richard Gray will direct the film, with Macfadyen and Eric Belgau writing the script. Helmer Gray, Macfadyen, Hutchison, Kim Barnard, Nick Farnell, Cameron Nuggent and Andrew Curry will produce the film.

Hmm I guess that the powers that be in Scotland wants that second referendum as we have the Netflix flick just out:D;). Wonder who the backers are on this un.

If it has a Tim Roth's Archibald Cunningham type character, that would be good.

The history of Robert the Bruce and the various wars in and around his time make for interesting reading. But the history is far too complex to accurately depict on screen without sacrificing the simplistic 'goodies and baddies' narrative so I doubt we'll ever see it. Robert became quite the conqueror later on attempting invasions in England and Ireland (which he hoped to unify with Scotland as part of a pan-Gaelic nation). The Irish were having none of it though.

Hope you don’t mind if I post the latest Honest Trailer here!



According to the writer John O'Farrell said about the film(Braveheart), would not have been less historically accurate if a plasticine dog had been inserted into the picture and the titled changed to William Wallace and Gromit.:rotfl:

As one of the few that thoroughly enjoyed Netflix's The Outlaw King, I'll be interested to see how this measures up.

Don’t think this trailer has been posted as yet... can’t see any mention of Robert the Bruce on Cineworld / Vue / Odeon websites, even though it’s supposed to be released nationwide on June 28th...
