Ed Harris is joining Ethan Hawke for a bit of the Bard.

The “Pain and Gain” co-star is set to join the “Before Midnight” star in Michael Almereyda’s modern day adaption of Shakespeare’s timeless play “Cymberline”.

Los Angeles, CA (August 5, 2013) –Academy Award nominee Ed Harris (THE HOURS, PAIN AND GAIN) is set to star alongside Ethan Hawke in writer/director Michael Almereyda’s modern day adaption of

Shakespeare’s timeless play CYMBELINE produced by Anthony Katagas (12 YEARS A SLAVE, THE IMMIGRANT, KILLING THEM SOFTLY) for Keep Your Head Productions and Michael Benaroya (MARGIN CALL, KILL YOUR DARLINGS), who will fully finance the film through his banner Benaroya Pictures. Ben Sachs of Benaroya Pictures will executive produce the film, with International Film Trust (IFT), Benaroya’s foreign sales arm, handling all international rights to the film.

Set to start principal photography on August 19, 2013 in New York City, CYMBELINE unfolds as an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug dealing biker gang set in a corruption-riddled 21st century America. In the vein of Sons of Anarchy and in the style of ROMEO + JULIET, CYMBELINE is a fresh take on a universal story of love, betrayal and revenge.

Ed Harris, who plays King Cymbeline, stars in The Weinstein Company’s SNOWPIERCER alongside Jamie Bell and Chris Evans, and will soon star opposite Annette Bening in the romantic drama, THE FACE OF LOVE. He is a four-time Academy Award nominee for his performances in APOLLO 13, THE TRUMAN SHOW, THE HOURS and POLLOCK, which he also directed. He has won Golden Globes for his performances in THE TRUMAN SHOW and HBO’s GAME CHANGE. A multi-award-winning stage actor, Harris will star Off-Broadway this winter, reprising the role he created at the Geffen Playhouse, in the New York Premiere of Beth Henley’s “The Jacksonian.”
