Macbeth Adaptation ‘Enemy Of Man’ To Star Rupert Grint, Sean Bean

September 6 2013

One of the darkest Shakespeare characters, Macbeth will come to life once again in the form of British actor Sean Bean. Harry Potter star Rupert Grint and Game Of Thrones’ Charles Dance will join the cast of Enemy Of Man, the new Vincent Regan film.

Kaleidoscope Film Distribution has sealed the deal as the film’s worldwide distributor and it will start its pitch during the Toronto International Film Festival, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The new adaptation is set to start filming in January 2014.

Also starring are Jason Flemyng (X-Men: First Class), James D’Arcy (Cloud Atlas), Neil Maskell (Kill List), and Joe Gilgun (This is England).

The film is being labelled as a retelling of the classic story of a brave Scottish general named Macbeth, who receives a prophecy from three witches who tell him that one day he will become King of Scotland. This fuels his ambition and he stops at nothing to make the prediction come true.
