    Ryan Gosling and Julia Roberts have been tapped to play Emmanuel Macron and his wife in a television dramatization of their relationship, which began when she was his high school teacher.

    Brigitte, une Femme Libre – or Brigitte, a free woman – has not yet been cast in the role, but during a discussion of the production on BFM TV, Roselyne Bachelot, the former French minister of culture, suggested actors she would like to see in the role.

    “I immediately thought of Ryan Gosling because I noticed a physical resemblance between Emmanuel Macron and Ryan Gosling,” she said. “And I also thought about Julia Roberts.”

    Gaumont did not give a release date for the series to be screened, but said he was working on a drama that would follow the “storybook” relationship between Mr. and Mrs. Macron.

    It will be written by French screenwriters Bénédicte Charles and Olivier Pouponneau, and each episode will last 45 minutes.

    “Brigitte Macron is a fascinating character, we wanted to approach her in a romantic, almost melodramatic way because of the romantic breath of her destiny,” Ms. Charles said in an interview with Le Figaro newspaper.

    The Elysee Palace said, that they were not participating in the project and learned about it from the press.

    The story begins in 1992, when 15-year-old Macron met his future wife, who was 39 years old at the time, at a theater workshop and lead the audience to today.

    The private life of a sitting head of state is generally prohibited on French television and film, and Ms Bachelot said she did not like the idea.

    But she acknowledged that if the drama were to air, she would be one of the first to watch it.

    When prompted by Gosling for the role, another expert joked that the series should be called “Blah Blah Land,” a reference to Gosling's 2017 film “La La Land.”

    Ms Macron was a married drama teacher at Providence Catholic School in Amiens when she met the future president.

    Their relationship sparked controversy in the provincial town in northern France and led to that Mr. Macron's parents, both doctors, sent him to a boarding school in Paris to attend sixth grade.

    In 2006, Ms. Macron divorced from her ex-husband André-Louis Ozier, a banker, and Mr. Macron married a year later.
