Milla Jovovich to star in Cymbeline

Milla Jovovich has been cast in the new Cymbeline movie.

The Resident Evil star will play the queen in the modern day adaptation of William Shakespeare's play, reported Deadline.

Ed Harris and Ethan Hawke are already on board for Michael Almereyda's movie, which is set in corruption-riddled 21st century America and focuses on the battle between dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang.

Ed is set to play King Cymbeline, who banishes Posthumus, whom he raised as a son, after he secretly marries his daughter.

Ethan's role is yet to be revealed, but Penn Badgley will apparently play Posthumus.

Filming is scheduled to start in New York in the coming weeks.
