TORONTO – U.K. banner Kaleidoscope Film Distribution has struck a deal for worldwide distribution rights to Enemy of Man, a reworking of Shakespearean tragedy Macbeth, which boasts Harry Potter star Rupert Grint as part of the cast. Kaleidoscope will begin pre-sales during the Toronto International Film Festival on the title, which is set to begin filming in January of 2014 and stars Sean Bean as the tragic antihero. Kaleidoscope will also distribute the title in the U.K. Vincent Regan directs this latest version, billed as a retelling of a timeless tale of war, regicide, betrayal and untimely revenge.
"Although 400 years old, Shakespeare’s work feels truly contemporary," Regan said. "An ambitious childless couple; their longing for family replaced by a chilling pursuit of absolute power. Remaining true to its dark heart, we will strip back the dialogue, crank up the action and produce an atmospheric and blood-soaked chiller."
Enemy of Man IMDB page with Sean Bean listed as Macbeth
Enemy of Man, it's a modern version of Macbeth, but maintains elements of tradition too. So they're not setting in 1930's Argentina or anything, it's set in the Scottish Highlands, with all the blood and gore you'd expect. Charles Dance, Rupert Grint, they're in it. Jason Flemying, Stephen Graham, so there are some great actors in it, oh and Sean Bean, he's in it too.
Filming at Hedingham Castle
