Daily Read (5/5/16)

I hear some of you like Benedict Cumberbatch? Here he is talking about playing Richard III in the new season of The Hollow Crown. (I just glanced at the cast list for that episode and it’s GREAT, of course.)

Apparently Josh Boone has confirmed he’s written a script for the Interview with the Vampire reboot. Maybe I will finally get around to reading that book.

Huh: A modern Midsummer Night’s Dream with Rachel Leigh Cook, Hamish Linklater, Avan Jogia, Lily Rabe, and others?

Speaking of Shakespeare: Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts may star in Ophelia, based on the Lisa Klein novel based, of course, on Hamlet.

FX has optioned Don DeLillo’s forthcoming novel Zero K.
