Entirely shot on green screen, Shakespeare’s Macbeth has been reinvented by director Kit Monkman (The Knife That Killed Me) in an exciting new film adaptation. Starring Mark Rowley, (The Last Kingdom, Luther) the film became available on digital download from 23rd April. The release date marks the anniversary of both the day Shakespeare was born and died.
Monkman’s unique adaptation successfully bridges the gap between theatre and film to create a wholly new type of imaginative space. This radical new adaptation puts the audience’s engagement with the story centre-stage, amplifying the theatrical context of the original and creating truly innovative and thrilling cinematic vistas, whilst maintaining the language and themes of Shakespeare’s original play.
Strike Media handled the PR for the VOD release of Macbeth along with helping with the theatrical PR, gaining coverage in a range of publications including Evening Standard Online, Daily Express, Yahoo UK, BBC Radio Kent and This is Local London.
