Well, Peter O’Toole’s retirement only lasted about a year, because now he’s back and we’ve got the first trailer for his, um, comeback vehicle, a British indie called Katherine of Alexandria.
Newcomer Nicole Keniheart plays Katherine of Alexandria, who later became St. Katharine, the patron saint of scholars. A bit of a controversial Saint, she was officially removed from the Catholic calendar in 1969 only to be reinstated in 2002 by Pope John Paul II.
The film also stars Joss Ackland as Rufus, Steven Berkoff as Liberius, Edward Fox as Emperor Constantius and Samantha Beckinsale as Empress Vita. It’s expected to be released in early 2014.
