The Crown star Olivia Colman lands next lead movie role

  The Crown star Olivia Colman lands next lead movie role Joyride will be "a feel-good foul-mouthed fairytale".As reported by Variety, the actress will star in the film Joyride as main character Joy, a 'train-wreck' of a person who is on a run and planning to give away her newborn baby to her best friend. Apparently she will be joined by a 'street urchin', which sounds quite Dickensian to us, which makes sense as the film is being described as "a feel-good foul-mouthed fairytale".

Marg n' @tchalamet.

Helena Bonham Carter is reportedly all but confirmed to play Princess Margaret in the next two seasons of Netflix drama The Crown. Funnily, both actors have previous playing the same royal - the Queen Mum: Olivia Colman in Hyde Park on Hudson and Bonham Carter in The King's Speech.

Colman was the picture of sophistication as she arrived at the Curzon Mayfair in a black fishtail wn with a bright green bag in her hand. The actress completed her chic look with simple make-up and long earrings. Bonham Carter also wowed the crowd in her quirky tulle dress, which featured sections of

Mailonline has contacted representatives for Olivia Colman, Helena Bonham Carter and the BBC for comment.  

This comes as it emerged  Netflix has scored a huge hit with its fourth series of The Crown.

While official figures are yet to be released by Netflix, that reported figure would mean more people watched the dramatised version of Prince Charles and Princess Diana's courtship than the couple's real life wedding in 1981.

Just under 29 million globally watched the drama in its first week of release from November 4, that's 600,000 more than watched TV coverage in Britain of the royal wedding in 1981, reports The Sun. 

750 million viewers watched the wedding around the world.   

Netflix does not officially publicise figures until a month after a show first comes out with official figures for series three showing that 21 million watched in its opening week. 

The fourth series though is expected to draw in more viewers thanks to its highly publicised portryal of Charles (played by Josh O'Connor) and Diana's (played by newcomer to the show Emma Corrin) early years of courtship and marriage.

The Sun report that Josh and Emma and other members of the cast were told about the soaring viewing figures recently, with a source saying: 'Everyone involved is totally thrilled.'

'There was more hype than ever on this year's series, and arguably more pressure on all the cast, crew and writers.

The Crown's Emma Corrin shares more candid backstage clips

  The Crown's Emma Corrin shares more candid backstage clips Since season 4 of The Crown was released two weeks ago, cast and crew alike have delighted fans with backstage photos and videos. And Emma Corrin - who portrays Princess Diana in the Netflix original - has provided more insight into what goes on behind-the-scenes.The rising star, 24, is seen in jovial clips as she larks around with co-star and on-screen husband Josh O'Connor, has a wedding dress fitting and knits in a quiet moment between takes.

'But the reviews have been almost unanimously rave - and this is reflected in the first week viewing figures.

The lead up to the wedding of Prince Charles and Princess Diana is shown in episode 3 of the new series, but while fans get a glimpse of Emma in the Princess of Wales' iconic dress, the show chose not to renact the wedding in full.  

As Emma explained to The Hollywood Reporter recently: 'We never re-create things just for the sake of re-creating them.'

'I think if we do re-create a scene – like the engagement scene, for instance, when they do the announcement – it has to be because it's linked to something that the characters are going through. It has to be part of the story.' 

She pointed out that, with the wedding scene, 'you can YouTube it and you could be watching it in 10 seconds, so I don't think there'd be any point in us re-creating it'. 

Josh added of the decision made by the show's creator: 'Peter Morgan isn't interested in showing you the wedding because, yeah, Emma's right, you just go on YouTube and you can watch it.'

Oliver Dowden, the Culture Secretary, is expected to write to the US streaming giant this week, raising concerns that some younger viewers may mistake The Crown as a work of fact.
