Prince Philip As Mapplethorpe

Samuel Goldwyn Films has picked up the North American rights to the feature film “Mapplethorpe,” which sees “The Crown” star Matt Smith — he plays Prince Philip — as controversial photographer Robert Mapplethorpe. The movie follows the photographer in his early career, as he photographs everyone from New York socialites to members of the city’s S&M underground scene. Marianne Rendon, John Benjamin Hickey and Mark Moses also star in the movie, which screened at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival and will be a fall release.
