Ethan Hawke Tackles Shakespeare’s “Cymbeline”

Ethan Hawke will re-team with his “Hamlet” director Michael Almereyda for “Cymbeline,” another modern day adaption of a William Shakespeare work at Keep Your Head Productions and Benaroya Pictures.

The story for this film will portray a battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled 21st century America.

Shakespeare’s play followed the daughter of the British king Cymbeline, who discovers she has secretly married a man raised in her father’s court, resulting in his banishment from the court.

Anthony Katagas will produce. Shooting begins August 19th in New York City.
