The first teaser has been unveiled for director Roland Emmerich’s upcoming feature Anonymous, starring EDWARD HOGG.
‘What if Shakespeare never wrote anything at all?’ That is the question posed by Emmerich’s new historical thriller, which is set during the Essex Rebellion at the end of the long reign of Elizabeth I, when factions struggled over the succession.
Anonymous explores the long-discussed theory that another man, Edward De Vere, Earl of Oxford (played by Rhys Ifans), wrote all of the great works credited to William Shakespeare. EDWARD HOGG plays the queen’s counselor Robert Cecil, alongside an all-star cast including Rhys Ifans, David Thewlis, Joely Richardson, Vanessa Redgrave and Derek Jacobi.
Anonymous will be released in the UK and the USA on 30th September 2011. Check out the trailer below:
