Hallmark film on royal couple to shoot in Romania

A Romanian film production company says a film on the love story between Prince William and Kate Middleton will be shot in Romania.

MediaPro Studios say Friday the TV film based on the royal love story will be produced by the Motion Picture Corp. of America for the Hallmark television channel.

Linda Yellen will direct "William & Kate: A Royal Love Story." She directed CBS's "The Royal Romance of Charles and Diana" in 1982.

Actor Dan Amboyer, who made his debut in the "Law & Order" series will play Prince William, while British actress Alice St. Clair will portray Middleton. Oscar-nominated Jane Alexander will play Queen Elizabeth II.

Shooting starts this month and the world premiere is expected in August.
