Helen Mirren Decides She's Only Taking Roles Where She Plays The Queen!!

Okay okay, so maybe she won't be taking only Queen Elizabeth II roles from now on — but it feels like it!

Dame Helen Mirren has decided to join a brand new play from Peter Morgan called The Audience, where she will once again step into the role that won her an Oscar!

It'll be directed by the guy who did Billy ElliotStephen Daldry — and opens on February 15 2013, and runs to June 15 at London's Gielgud theater.

At it's core, the story is about the weekly meetings between The Queen and some of the 12 Prime Ministers of her reign.

Here's how it's explained in the press release:

"From Churchill to Cameron, each Prime Minister has used these private conversations as a sounding board and a confessional - sometimes intimate, sometimes explosive."

Morgan's previous work includes the play Frost/Nixon, and he has written screenplays for The Last King of Scotland, The Damned United and the upcoming Playboy — so you KNOW it'll be fab!

We're pumped for this — we just wish it wasn't so far away! We'd LOVE to see it!

    Dear Dame Mirren:
    How lovely. Your talents expand to accepting all "Queen" roles, and I didn't even know you were gay!
