Kenneth Branagh's Martin Scorsese Macbeth film plan

By Lesley Houston

Kenneth Branagh has confirmed that plans for a collaboration with Oscar-winning director Martin Scorsese on a new film version of Macbeth are moving forward.

Branagh's latest adaptation of the Scottish tragedy first presented in New York last year is to be filmed at Leavesden, Hertfordshire - marking Scorcese's first Shakespearean play to screen project.

The new production - co-directed by Branagh and Rob Ashford - will also aim to reunite most of the original company as possible, including Doctor Who star Alex Kingston as Lady Macbeth, and will stage the play while Scorsese captures their work on film.
