Ed Harris to Star Opposite Ethan Hawke in Film Adaption of Shakespeare 'Cymbeline'
From writer-director Michael Almereyda, the film is a modern-day adaption of the classic play.
Ed Harris has signed on to star opposite Ethan Hawke in writer-director Michael Almereyda's modern-day adaption of Shakespeare's Cymbeline.
Scheduled to start principal photography on Aug. 19 in New York, Cymbeline unfolds as a battle between dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled 21st century America. Harris will play King Cymbeline.
Anthony Katagas (12 Years a Slave) is producing alongside Michael Benaroya (Margin Call), who will fully finance the film through his banner Benaroya Pictures. Benaroya's Ben Sachs is exec producing the film.
CAA is handling domestic sales. International Film Trust, Benaroya's foreign sales arm, is handling all international rights to the film.
Harris' upcoming credits include The Weinstein Company’s Snowpiercer alongside Jamie Bell and Chris Evans and the romantic drama The Face of Love opposite Annette Bening. He is a four-time Academy Award nominee for his performances in Apollo 13, The Truman Show, The Hours and Pollock, which he also directed.
Harris also will star in the off-Broadway premiere of Beth Henley's The Jacksonian this winter, reprising the role he originated at the Geffen Playhouse production.
He is repped by CAA and attorney Melanie Cook.
