Queen Mary 2 Will be Gracing the Screens in Steven Soderbergh's New Feature Film

This week (18 – 24 August) the luxury ocean liner Queen Mary 2 will provide the setting for a new film by Oscar® winning filmmaker Steven Soderbergh (Oceans 11, Traffic and Behind the Candelabra) and an Oscar® and Emmy® award-winning cast and crew.

The as of yet unnamed film will feature the Queen Mary 2 on the iconic Transatlantic Crossing and will be filmed over a seven-day eastbound voyage from New York to Southampton. HBO Max has acquired rights to the film and stars Meryl Streep, Candice Bergen, Gemma Chan, Lucas Hedges and Dianne Wiest. Gregory Jacobs is producing, with Ken Meyer and Joseph Malloch executive producing.

For onboard movie buffs, Queen Mary 2 guests will have the exciting opportunity to appear in the film as extras.

“There is only one way to cross the Atlantic in style and that’s on Cunard’s Queen Mary 2”, said Simon Palethorpe, President of Cunard. “We’re delighted to be hosting Steven Soderbergh, Meryl Streep and a star-studded cast on our flagship for what will be an incredible movie”.

Cunard has a long history of hosting stars of stage and screen on board their iconic ships. Luminaries such as Elizabeth Taylor, Rita Hayworth, Wes Anderson, and Tilda Swinton have all sailed with the luxury travel brand. Sting performed a set in Queen Mary 2’s Royal Court Theatre; Ed Sheeran wrote part of his last album on a Crossing, and Francis Ford Coppola sailed recently to work on his book while at sea.

In December 2017, Queen Mary 2 hosted the global premiere with a star-studded event for 20th Century Fox’s “The Greatest Showman” starring Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, Zac Efron, Rebecca Ferguson, and Zendaya.
