Rupert Everett (My Best Friend's Wedding) is likely to play King Charles I in Cromwell and Fairfax, starring Tim Roth and Dougray Scott, about the 17th-century English Civil War, the Screen International website reported today.

The British trade publication said that the $23-million movie will be the first to revisit that period of British history in more than 30 years, when Cromwell, starring Richard Harris and Alec Guinness, was produced.
