Colin Firth joins Dorian Gray

Prince Caspian star Ben Barnes is already attached to Oliver Parker’s new adaptation of The Picture Of Dorian Gray, but while he’ll be playing the central character - a young lord tempted and seduced into a hedonistic lifestyle who never ages while a picture of him suffers the damage instead – there are plenty of other characters in Oscar Wilde’s satirical horror.

Colin Firth has just signed on to play the most important one – Lord Henry Wotton, the man who first corrupts Gray. The film started shooting this week and The Hollywood Reporter is having its picture painted.
