365 Days of Shakespeare

That's right – the Bard in a year.

148. A bunch of good people in one place making an interesting-sounding movie? I’m in.

From making the world explode (Armageddon, Independence Day, 2012) to the mystery of authorship of Shakespeare’s plays (the upcoming Anonymous), Roland Emmerich seems to have gotten tired of making things go “boom” and now prefers to explore literary history for thrills.

The film will star fantastic actors such as Vanessa Redgrave, David Thewlis, and Rhys Ifans and will explore the idea that the Earl of Oxford was the true author of the plays.

“It’s the Tudors on one side and the Cecils on the other, and in between [the two] is the Queen. Through that story we tell how the plays written by the Earl of Oxford ended up labelled ‘William Shakespeare.'”

Should be an interesting film – I’ll be curious if Emmerich finds a way to incorporate people outrunning the cold.
