Netflix has just well and truly made dreams come true by bringing together 2010’s teen crush of choice Robert Pattinson and 2018 equivalent Timothée Chalamet for their upcoming historical drama The King.
Because why have one handsome, brooding, sensitive dreamboat when you can have two?
It was announced earlier this year that Timmy Chalamet would be starring as Henry V in the film, which instantly made the project more more hyped than any Shakespearean period piece would normally be.
Putting the exceptionally talented and very, very cute Timothée Chalamet on the English throne is a surefire way to get people’s attention – especially people of the young and thirsty variety.
Now Netflix has gone and added Robert Pattinson to the line up, which is almost more than my Twilight-stanning teen self can handle – and the cross-section of fandoms are blowing up with excitement online.
The King‘s epic cast now includes Robert Pattinson, Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn, and Lily-Rose Depp alongside King Timothée Chalamet (which shall be his official title from this point forward).
The film is set to be released on Netflix in 2019 so prepare yourself for some glorious, historical thirst content.
