Ethan Hawke will reunite with “Hamlet” writer-director Michael Almereyda on a film version of William Shakespeare’s “Cymberline”.

Much like their previous Bard interpretation, this one will be set in contemporary times.

Deadline says :

Hawke will star in the contemporary-set romance set against the backdrop of a war between dirty cops and drug-dealing bikers, in what’s being described as Sons of Anarchy meets ROMEO + JULIET.

Hawke has been a busy guy of late; he starred in 2013′s “The Purge” and “Before Midnight”, and can next be seen in “Getaway” with Selena Gomez. Next year he’ll be seen in “Predesintation” from the Spierig Brothers.
