Both Clive Owen (Children of Men) and Tom Felton (Harry Potter) have recently been spotted in downtown Prague after joining the production of Ophelia, currently being filmed in Prague.
The film sees a new take on the Shakespearean tragedy Hamlet – from the perspective of Ophelia played by Star Wars’ Daisy Ridley (featured), the love interest of the Prince of Denmark.
Directed by Claire McCarthy (The Turning) and based on the novel by Lisa Klein, Ophelia is a romantic drama set in the 14th century but will be spoken in a contemporary dialogue, different to Shakespeare’s original bard-speak in Hamlet.
The film also stars Naomi Watts (Mulholland Drive) and George MacKay (Captain Fantastic) as Prince Hamlet himself, and is expected to premiere at Cannes in 2018 through Covert Media.
