Colin Firth to Play Noel Coward in Vegas


Colin Firth will play Noel Coward in “Mad Dogs and Englishmen,” the producers announced in Cannes, France.

The film centers on the real-life saga of the sophisticated British playwright-actor’s two-week run at the Desert Inn in Las Vegas in 1955.

The next step is to find a director for the film, which The Hollywood Reporter says has no release date.

The newspaper said “Mad Dogs” is being produced by BiteSize Entertainment, a newly launched company led by Gene Kirkwood, who oversaw “Rocky,” and Mevio CEO Ron Bloom.
