    Philippa Langley (Initiator, Screenwriter & Member of the Richard III Society)

    “It’s about time that King Richard III got his turn” [and gets his own film]. Life of King Richard III is “gold dust” for a screenwriter.

    And Philippa Langley’s comment about Richard Armitage:

    He [Richard Armitage] is my number one favourite for this part [as King Richard III].
    […]
    He is the most incredibly talented actor. You know, I am a huge fan of the work that he has done.

    The relevant part is right at the end of the interview. In the version I can access right now, the end is cut off. I hope this will be corrected with the planned next airing of the documentary on 01.01.2013.

    Plans of Richard Armitage about King Richard III:

    What’s new?
     
    Armitage hopes investors will come forward to fund the filming of Richard III, a project that he has been working to get off the ground for a few years.
     
    Armitage intends to play the 15th century English king who was believed to have murdered his nephews in a bid to grab the throne. Richard III was the last English king to be killed in battle on English soil.
     
    Incidentally, Armitage was named Richard as he was born on the anniversary of Richard III’s death on Aug 22.
