What Happened To Monday? and Closer star Noomi Rapace will lead a gender-swapped take on Shakespearean drama, Hamlet, when cameras roll later next year. Swedish-Danish-Iranian filmmaker Ali Abbasi will direct from a script by Sjón with Stine Meldgaard Madsen (Borgen) producing for Meta Film in association with Boom Films. “Shakespeare stole the Hamlet story from us. Now it’s our turn to claim it back and make a version so insane and so bloody that make him turn in his grave. Let’s make Hamlet great again!” says Abbasi. (DEADLINE)
