Scott Thomas joins The Kitchen Boy

Kristin Scott Thomas is set to play a Russian Empress in a new film.

The Only God Forgives actress has signed up for The Kitchen Boy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The film is an adaptation of the best-selling historical novel by Robert Alexander.

The story is told from the perspective of a young servant, and "recounts the final weeks in the lives of Russia's last Tsar and Tsarina, Nicholas II and Alexandra Romanov, and their children, when the family was banished to Siberia".

Kristin, 53, has been cast as Alexandra.

The Kitchen Boy will be directed by Stefan Ruzowitzky.
