    Emile Hirsch is attached to star as the title character in a modern retelling of Hamlet for Overture Films. Catherine Hardwicke is attached to direct the project, which producers says was was co-conceived of by Hirsch.

    Screenwriter Ron Nyswaner of Philadelphia fame will write the script. Once a finished script is delivered, the film will go into production. Some of the changes include being set in modern day America, with the young, tortured son Hamlet deciding if he should slay his uncle in order to avenge his father's death. The producers hope to give the film a suspense thriller feel so that contemporary audiences can connect with the classic story.
