Shakespeare’s Othello in modern day film reboot
Whilst ID coordinators, Dan and Ronin, have been working on an array of Shakespeare plays for stage this year Dan is also creating the fights on this Othello adaption, renamed Beautiful Devils.
Set in modern day London with Othello - Oz, played by Osy Ikhile ('Mission Impossible - Rough Nation') - as the front man of a band, who unwittingly alienates Ivan (Iago) - played by Elliot James Langridge ('Hollyoaks') - by replacing him in the group. Ivan takes his revenge in a twisted plot of lies and sabotage.
Adding to the all star cast are Rachel Hurd-Wood ('Peter Pan', 'Perfume') as Darcy (Desdemona), Dominique Provost-Chalkley ('Avengers: Age of Ultron') as Emmy (Emilia) and Iain Glen (Game of Thrones', 'Tomb Raider') as Dr Brabant (Brabantio)
Ronin joined the team as armourer for one of the particularly violent scenes and stunt doubles Lisa Connell and Lyndall Grant were on hand to give that little extra when required.
The film is directed by James Marquand and produced by Craig Tuohy. Details of its release to be announced.
