Danny Dyer wants Helen Mirren to play his mum

Tuesday February 21, 2012

Danny Dyer has said Dame Helen Mirren could be playing his mother in his latest film.

The Hardman actor made his showbiz debut opposite the Oscar-winning actress playing a homeless boy in Prime Suspect 3 almost 20 years ago, and wants to be reunited with her on the big screen.

Danny has signed up to star in new film The Most Dangerous Girl In The World, with Ray Winstone playing his dad.

The project is already a reunion for the two.

He explained: "I worked with him about four years ago in a thing for Channel 4 called All In The Game, he played my dad in it.

"And he's going to be playing my dad again in The Most Dangerous Girl In The World.

 "I know Ray's signed up. They're trying to get Helen Mirren to play my mum. What a dream team that would be! I love that woman, love her dearly," he added.
