Helena Bonham Carter, Jennifer Ehle, Colin Firth, Michael Gambon, Derek Jacobi, Guy Pearce, Geoffrey Rush, and Timothy Spall will star in Tom Hooper's The King's Speech, according to Variety.

The period drama, written by David Seidler, follows the young King George VI -- the father of the current Queen Elizabeth II -- as he reluctantly assumes the throne after his brother Edward abdicates. Cursed with a nervous stammer, the unprepared monarch turns to an unorthodox speech therapist, Lionel Logue.
