Rosamund Pike is in talks to board David Oyelowo’s passion project A United Kingdom, Deadline has learned. No deal has been done yet and there are still details to iron out but there is strong interest from both sides to make this work.

A United Kingdom, which Pathe is financing, tells the true story of Prince Seretse Khama of Botswana, who caused an international stir when he married Ruth Williams, a white woman from London in the 1940’s. The much-in-demand Pike would play the role of the royal’s wife-to-be should the deal close. The interracial union was opposed by both their families, as well as the British government, the Tribal elders of Botswana and the apartheid government of South Africa. The couple would not be denied, overcoming huge obstacles to be together, including exile and the abdication of the throne. Their son, Ian Khama, is currently the democratically elected president of Botswana and the family is cooperating with the project.

Oyelowo is producing with Rick McCallum, Brunson Green, Justin Moore Lewy and Charlie Mason. The race is on now to find a director who can get cameras rolling by the year’s end. The script is written by Guy Hibbert, whose credits include Omagh and most recently Drone drama Eye in the Sky. Hibbert is also exec producing with Pathe’s Cameron McCracken.

Oyelowo won critical raves for his performance as Martin Luther King in Ava DuVernay’s Selma. He is currently filming Mira Nair’s Queen of Katwe opposite Lupita Nyong’o (12 Days a Slave).

Pike is repped by United Agents in the UK and CAA in the U.S.

Jason Clarke (“Zero Dark Thirty”), Rosamund Pike (“Gone Girl”), Jack O’Connell (“Unbroken”), Mia Wasikowska (“Maps to the Stars”) and Jack Reynor (“Glassland”) are set to topline Cedric Jimenez’s “HHHH,” a WWII-set drama depicting the meteoric rise and fall of Reinhard Heydrich in Nazi Germany.

Produced by Alain Goldman’s Legende Films (“La Vie en Rose,” “The Connection”) and Simon Istolainen’s Adama Pictures (“The Brats”), “HHHH” will star Clarke as Heydrich, the highest-ranked Nazi officer who was considered to be the mastermind of the “Final Solution” and was assassinated by two resistance paratroopers (to be played by O’Connell and Reynor) in 1942.

The two paratroopers, who were Czech and Slovak-born, had been personally chosen by Winston Churchill and President of Czechoslovakia Edvard Beneš.

Pike will play Lina Heydrich, an aristocrat who was married to Heydrich and reportedly introduced her husband to the Nazi ideology. Wasikowska, meanwhile, will star as a Czech resistance fighter.

Echo Lake Entertainment and FilmNation are backing the pic. FilmNation reps international sales outside of France and the U.S. and will start shopping the project at Cannes. WME Global is handling the US deal.

Script is based on Laurent Binet’s recent Goncourt prize-winning eponymous first novel, which was adapted by David Farr, Audrey Diwan and Jimenez.

“HHHH” marks Jimenez’s follow-up to “The Connection,” the thriller starring Jean Dujardin and Gilles Lellouche, which was also produced by Alain Goldman’s Legende and co-written by Diwan. The Drafthouse release played at Toronto.

‘HHHH’ is a utterly compelling story which juxtaposes two antagonist forces — the worst and the best of human nature — as did ‘The Connection’ in its depiction of Judge Michel’s heroic journey to bring down the French Connection,” Goldman told Variety. “In the first chapter, we portray Heydrich intimately and professionally, and we shed light on his darkest side; while in the second chapter, we follow the two paratroopers as they embark on a foolish yet epic mission to kill Heydrich.”

Goldman, who relocated to Los Angeles last year, said the project was meant to highlight a chapter of Nazi Germany history seldom covered in films, as well as modernize the genre thanks to the cast, script and Jimenez, a passionate up-and-coming director who proved with “The Connection” that he could provide depth and substance to complex characters.

Shooting will begin in Prague and Budapest in early August.

Fox has put Deep Blue Goodbye, its adaptation of the John D. MacDonald mystery-adventure book series that was to have starred Christian Bale, in dry dock.

Bale, who was to have starred in the project as a freewheeling ex-soldier living on a house boat and acting as a self-proclaimed “salvage consultant,” tore his ACL just before his shoot for Paramount’s financial drama The Big Short. But the knee ligament injury will prevent him from filming Goodbye, which was to have been a far more physically intensive shoot. The climax, for example, was an intense action sequence on boats.

James Mangold was set to direct the thriller, which also had Peter Dinklage, Rosamund Pike and Nicola Peltz on board to co-star. The planned May start of production in Florida and Puerto Rico has been deep-sixed.

The fate of Goodbye is unclear. While some say the project is dead, other sources believe the movie could be postponed rather than totally scrubbed. But if it is delayed, Fox might need to find a new star. Bale remains one of the most in-demand actors in the industry, with several projects scheduled for the next year. Teaming him with Mangold and the same players will not be easy. Mangold, who directed The Wolverine for Fox, also could end up on Wolverine 3 earlier than expected for the studio.

The Deep Blue Goodbye project has been in development since the late 1990s, with Oliver Stone and Paul Greengrass among those slated to direct. Leonardo DiCaprio was at one point set to star and is one of the producers. With years of development invested, Fox is not likely to bid adieu to Goodbye for good.

Sources say the studio and producers at Chernin Entertainment as well as Appian Way tried to salvage the project by quickly finding another lead. Brad Pitt was among those approached but could not do it, thus leading to the painful decision to cut bait.
