Pacino in Shakespeare

05.21.2003

Al Pacino has signed on to star in a big-screen adaptation of Shakespeare's THE MERCHANT OF VENICE. Pacino would star as Shylock with Cate Blanchett, Ian McKellan and Joseph Fiennes also joining the cast. IL POSTINO director Michael Radford is expected to begin filming this September in - natch - Venice. Don't expect this version to be like O or Ethan Hawke's HAMLET or any of those modernized versions of Shakespeare. This version of VENICE will be a "stylized period adaptation." So unfortunately we won't get to see Pacino as a tough-talking Noo Yawk Shylock. HOO-AH!
