Ewan McGregor joins the cast of 'W.E.'

The Playlist are reporting that Ewan McGregor has joined Madonna's cast for 'W.E.' and notes that shooting of the film will mostly take place in London this summer:

Ewan McGregor has joined the talented cast of Madonna's upcoming dual-narrative drama, 'W.E.'
McGregor will portray King Edward VIII in the film's period narrative which will follow his character's famous abdication of the throne in 1936 to marry American socialite and divorcee, Wallis Simpson, who will be played by Vera Farmiga.
Abbie Cornish will lead the contemporary parallel narrative, such as that in 'Julie & Julia,' and will play Wally Winthrop, a character who has romantic problems of her own as well as an obsession with the life of the aforementioned Duchess of Windsor, Simpson. Winthrop's adulterous romantic interest - a Russian security guard - is presumably yet to be cast though Madonna had been noted as completing that in the following weeks.
Shooting will take place in London this summer with stints in the South Of France and New York.
