Tom Felton, George McKay, Clive Owen and Devon Terrell have joined Covert Media’s upcoming film, OPHELIA, a re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet, starring Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts.

Directed by Claire McCarthy and based on the award-winning novel by Lisa Klein, the screenplay was adapted by SemiChellas.

Set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice, OPHELIA is a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Ophelia (Ridley) takes center stage as the Queen’s (Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful but intelligent, she soon captured the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet (McKay) and a forbidden love blossoms. As war brews, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore Castle apart from within and Ophelia must decide between her true love or her own life to protect a very dangerous secret. 

Owen will play Claudius, Felton will play Laertes and Terrell will play Horatio.

Production will begin later this month in Prague.
