We here at KellyReilly.org are wishing Kelly the happiest of birthday’s today!
EXCLUSIVE: Kelly Reilly is set to board event TV series Britannia, which charts the Roman invasion of what would become Great Britain in 43 A.D. and the rise of iconic female warrior Boudicca. The eight-part series, which is now set up at Sky, will follow the growing relationship between Boudicca and Roman Consul Cassius who ultimately unite to lead an insurgency against Roman Emperor Claudius. Reilly plays the key character of Kerra.
Britannia is being pitched as a high-end earthy swords and sandals show that can appeal to audiences. Kari Skogland (Vikings; House Of Cards) is directing. Star Wars‘ Rick McCallum is producing. Sky’s Anne Mensah exec produces alongside One Three Television’s Anne Thomopoulos, Vertigo’s James Richardson and Terry Cafolla. Filming starts in May.
Reilly has the Idris Elba-Richard Madden actioner Bastille Day coming out later this month. The Studio Canal pic opens in the UK on April 22; focus is releasing domestically. The pic, directed by James Watkins, follows a young artist and former CIA agent who embark on an anti-terrorist mission in France.
Eee! This is so exciting to hear, hopefully we’ll see Kelly back on our screens again very soon then. Can’t wait to find out more about it once filming begins.
Currently there is still no news on a North American release date, dates for Germany, France, New Zealand and others have recently popped up so hopefully we’ll hear something soon. In the mean time, Bastille Day arrives in UK cinemas on April 22nd.
The first trailer for Kelly’s new movie Bastille Day is finally available! The movie will hit UK cinemas on April 22. You can find the trailer below:
Michael Mason (Richard Madden, Game Of Thrones) is an American pickpocket living in Paris who finds himself in the hands of the CIA when he steals a bag that contains more than just a wallet. Sean Briar (Idris Elba, Avengers: Age Of Ultron), the field agent on the case, soon realizes that Michael is just a pawn in a much bigger game and is also his best asset to uncover a large-scale criminal conspiracy in the heart of the police force.
Going against commands, Briar recruits Michael to help quickly track down the source of the corruption. As a 24hr chase ensues, the unlikely duo discover they are both targets and must rely upon each other in order to take down a common enemy.
