Edward Hogg, who starred in last year’s Sundance title White Lightnin’, is playing one of the leads in Roland Emmerich’s next film Anonymous, producers announced today. The British actor will play Robert Cecil, the first Earl of Salisbury, who was a 16th-century minister serving Queen Elizabeth I. The film is about the true author of Shakespeare’s plays. Anonymous will shoot at Germany’s Studio Babelsberg starting in March. It marks the first shoot in Germany in 20 years for director Emmerich (2012).
