Scottish actor Ewan McGregor's representative has shot down reports to play the lead in Madonna's new film 'W.E' about late British royal King Edward VIII.

The 'Material Girl' is stepping behind the camera to direct a historical drama based on the former King, who abdicated in 1936 so he could marry twice-divorced American socialite Wallis Simpson, reports contactmusic.com.

McGregor was reported to have signed up to play the lead in the upcoming movie. But now a spokesperson for the actor has dismissed the claims, telling that McGregor is 'not doing' the film.
