Emile Hirsch is Hamlet, Rejoins Catherine Hardwicke
Emile Hirsch is set to star in a new modern-day adaptation of Hamlet
The 24-year-old actor will be re-teaming with his Lords of Dogtown director Catherine Hardwicke, who most recently helmed the smash hit Twilight.
Producers Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen credit Emile with coming up with the idea for the modernized version of the Shakespeare classic.
Ron Nyswaner (Philadelphia) will adapt the story for its new setting in contemporary America.
