Kenneth Branagh To Play The Infamous Bard William Shakespeare In “All Is True”

Published

on

After years of adapting William Shakespeare’s plays to film, Kenneth Branagh is now taking things a step further and casting himself as the legendary playwright. So what else do we know about this cinematic ode to the bard?

No Stranger

Branagh has been adapting Shakespeare’s work for years. Whether it be Much Ado About Nothing, As You Like It or 1989’s Henry V, a film in which Branagh cast himself as the title character, Branagh has been immersed in the legend’s work for a long time.

Notably, Branagh’s adaptations have not always been by the book. The afformentioned As You Like It, for example, took place in Japan as a romantic comedy.

Great Addition

Playing Shakespeare’s wife Anne in the upcoming film is phenomenal actor Judi Dench. She is known for a variety of great roles including multiple installments of the James Bond franchise.

Dench has a wealth of experience in film and will surely bring great talent to this film as the famous Anne Hathaway. Additionally, the great Ian McKellen is set to play Henry Wriothesely.

Plot Points

So far it seems that the general layout of the film is a look at Shakespeare’s later years. It appears that the playright’s beloved Globe Theatre has burned down and the bard has returned to Stratford where a slew of unresolved issues await him.

Kenneth Branagh is no stranger to the life and world of the legendary wordsmith William Shakespeare. With his past adaptations of the writer’s work in mind, Branagh seems like a strong choice to fill the role as Shakespeare himself in the upcoming All Is True. If you’re a fan of Shakespeare or of Branagh, or both, this film should bring some excitement for your new movie outlook.
