Watch: Explosive First Trailer For Shakespeare's 'Cymbeline' Starring Ethan Hawke, Milla Jovovich & More

Dirty cops, drug dealing biker gangs…. Now this is Shakespeare. Ethan Hawke has reteamed with his “Hamlet” director Michael Almereyda for a contemporary take on “Cymbeline” and they are moving fast. Lensing only went down in August, yet a trailer has emerged online already and it certainly throws any preconceived notions of the Bard out the window.

Co-starring Ed Harris, Milla JovovichPenn BadgleyAnton Yelchin and Dakota Johnson, this new adaptation takes the tale of Roman and Celtic nobility battling it out and takes it to the streets. With explosions, machine guns and lots of people looking pretty grimy, we’d wager it’s probably the most exciting treatment the otherwise less celebrated “Cymbeline” has ever gotten.

No release date or even U.S. distributor yet for this one, though it has sold in numerous territories worldwide. Watch below. [ONTD]

Excited for this one! Great material, interesting cast especially looking forward to Penn Badgely performance as he thoroughly impresses with each new role he takes on.
