Cymbeline

"Revenged? How should I be revenged?" Director Michael Almereyda and actor Ethan Hawke have already tackled Shakespeare before with a contemporary adaptation of Hamlet, and this time they're reteaming for more in Cymbeline. Presented with the same style and grit as the FX series "Sons of Anarchy, the story follows a battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang, set in a corruption-riddled contemporary America. If you liked Baz Luhrmann's Romeo + Juliet, then this is right up your alley. Plus the cast has Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Dakota Johnson and even John Leguizamo. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Michael Almereyda's Cymbeline from Lionsgate Unlocked:

Cymbeline is directed by Michael Almereyda (Hamlet), based on William Shakespeare's original text. Ethan Hawke (Training Day, The Purge) stars in the film which unfolds as an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled 21st century America. The film also features Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Penn Badgley, Anton Yelchin, Penn Badgley, John Leguizamo, Bill Pullman and Dakota Johnson. The film premieres at the Venice Film Festival this month but Lionsgate has already picked it up for release in the United States sometime in the spring of 2015. Stay tuned for any updates.

for god's sake, can't they do a shakespeare story and not use the original f***ing dialogue!!! It didn't work for romeo + juliet or hamlet for that matter. for once, use the plot, use the characters, use the general dialogue ideas, but adapt them accordingly.
