“The Nutcracker” Adds Helen Mirren

Disney’s film adaptation is assembling quite a cast, with Keira Knightley, Morgan Freeman, and now Helen Mirren apparently on board. Variety is reporting that Mirren — known for her roles in films such as REDThe Hundred-Foot Journey, and The Queen (for which she won an Oscar) — is in talks to join the production. Also attached at this time are Mackenzie Foy and Misty Copeland.
