Shakespeare is Dead – Long Live Shakespeare!

Filed under: Frank Remarks — Frank Fiore @ 2:46 PM

Would it surprise you to know that some of our most recent popular movies are based on Shakespeare’s plays? That’s right. The old master is still relevant today.

Here are some examples.

’10 Things I Hate About You’ (1999), ‘Deliver Us from Eva’ (2003), and ‘The Taming of the Shrew’

‘She’s The Man’ (2006) and ‘Twelfth Night’

The Lion King’ (1994) and ‘Hamlet’

‘The Lion King II’ (1998) and ‘Romeo and Juliet’
