cymbelineAnton Yelchin (Star Trek) and Dakota Johnson (21 Jump Street) have officially joined the cast of the upcoming Cymbeline opposite the previously-announced Ethan Hawke, Ed Harris and Milla Jovovich.

A modern day adaption of Shakespeare’s timeless play, Cymbeline hails from writer/director Michael Almereyda (Hamlet) and producers Anthony Katagas (Killing Them Softly) for Keep Your Head Productions and Michael Benaroya (Margin Call), 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. Said to be “in the vein of ‘Sons of Anarchy‘ and in the style of Romeo + Juliet,” Cymbeline offers a fresh take on a universal story of love, betrayal and revenge.
