Sony Pictures Classics has picked up the worldwide rights to the Kenneth Branagh-directed All Is True.
The movie, about the little-known final years of William Shakespeare, is set after his renowned Globe Theatre burns to the ground and he must return to Stratford, where he faces a troubled past and a neglected family.
Branagh, who is set to direct a follow-up to Fox’s Murder on the Orient Express, stars as the playwright and poet, with Judi Dench starring as his wife, Anne, and Ian McKellen playing the Earl of Southampton.
Ben Elton wrote the movie, which was produced by Tamar Thomas and Ted Gagliano. Executive producers are Judy Hofflund, Matt Jenkins, Becca Kovacik and Laura Berwick.
Sony Classics is planning an award release for the film with a one-week year-end qualifying run in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 21, followed by an official film release in 2019.
