"Hamlet" Being Remade for Kids

Posted: August 13th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Hamlet" Being Remade for KidsSubmit Comment
Elsinore Films is producing a 3-D musical "Hamlet" targeting the "Harry Potter" and "High School Musical" market. The movie will be the first of six adaptations of William Shakespeare's plays, based on musical versions created by UK theater company Shakespeare 4 Kidz.

The other five pics in the series are "Macbeth," "Romeo and Juliet," "A Midsummer Night's Dream," "Twelfth Night" and "The Tempest." The first three films will be made for $7 million and will be produced back to back over 18 months. Lensing will take place in Canada and the UK.

"Hamlet" lends itself to a 3-D treatment. The producers hope to include a ghost that hovers in front of the audience's eyes, cannon fire that flies into the auditorium and a sword fight that appears to happen all around viewers.

I think they already did this with THE LION KING. I guess nobody will be satisfied until Shakespeare is reached to every age group.

If Shakespeare knew his work was being done in 3D aimed at a child audience, he'd be spinning in his grave
