MICHAEL ALMEREYDA AND ETHAN HAWKE RETURNING TO SHAKESPEARE FOR CYMBELINE


In 2000, Michael Almereyda caused a bit of a stir with his modern-day adaptation of Hamlet. He's now tackling Shakespeare's Cymbeline, positing the tragic romance against an urban battle between a biker gang of drug dealers and corrupt police officers. Hamlet's leading man, Ethan Hawke, who's having a darn good year so far, will star, and principal photography has been scheduled for the 19th of August in New York.
