W.E. update

Rising Brit star James D'Arcy has been cast in Madonna's second directorial effort, "W.E.," as King Edward VIII.
D'Arcy joins Andrea Riseborough, Abbie Cornish and Oscar Isaac in the pic, which Madonna penned with Alek Keshishian, who directed the queen of pop in "Truth or Dare."
Riseborough, best known for her portrayal of Margaret Thatcher in the BBC drama "The Long Walk to Finchley," will play the role of Wallis, while Cornish and Isaac will play a contemporary couple in the present day. Cornish plays the role of Wally, a woman in a loveless marriage, who meets Isaac's Russian character, Evgeni at a Sotheby auction. Her belief in the great love story of Wallis and Edward provides the backdrop for the tales of both romances.
Former Miramax exec Colin Vaines will produce the pic, which will begin shooting in Blighty on July 4.
