Credit crunch kills Shakespeare
The economic crisis has claimed its first high-profile victim and it's a rather shocking one, in my book. What would you think of a version of King Lear with Keira Knightley, Naomi Watts, Gwyneth Paltrow, and Anthony Hopkins? Pretty bankable? Apparently not. This one went from "look at all those Oscar contenders!" to zero pretty quickly. A shame. I was quite looking forward to this one.
