The March 13 theatrical and VOD release is rapidly approaching for Lionsgate's Cymbeline, which was briefly known as Anarchy when the new trailer debuted in January. To get fans ready for the release, we have a character card for Penn Badgley's Posthumus. While this is based on William Shakespeare's classic play, this modern-day retelling is far more gritty and explosive than the source material.
Academy Award nominees Ethan Hawke (Best Supporting Actor, Boyhood, 2014) and Ed Harris (Best Actor, Pollock, 2000) lead a powerhouse cast including Milla Jovovich, John Leguizamo, Penn Badgley, Dakota Johnson and Anton Yelchin, with Bill Pullman and Delroy Lindo in a gritty story of a take-no-prisoners war between dirty cops and an outlaw biker gang. When extortion, betrayal, and fiery passions threaten his criminal empire, a drug kingpin (Harris) is driven to desperate measures in this explosive, modern retelling of Shakespeare's timeless play.
Cymbeline is directed by Michael Almereyda, who has already put a different spin on Shakespeare's Hamlet with his 2000 adaptation that starred Ethan Hawke. Do you think this modern-day take on Shakespeare will hit it big at the box office?
