Hardwicke talks Hamlet, hopes to show ‘scary stuff’
Talking to Movieline, Twilight director Catherine Hardwicke disclosed some of her plans for the upcoming contemporary update of Hamlet.
“It’s really like a thriller,” she said. “From the day Hamlet’s father dies, three days later eight people are dead and a ghost is telling him to murder for revenge so we’re doing it as a suspense thriller.”
Hardwicke added that there will some additions as well, including showing “all the action that often is off camera… it’s scary… you’re going to see a lot of crazy stuff.”
The film is expected sometime next year.
