New Hamlet news has been posted at Emile Hirsch Web:
Director Catherine Hardwicke’s latest project, announced earlier this week, could prevent her expected visit to the Rio Grande Valley in September, a representative from the organization sponsoring her visit said today.
Hardwicke, a McAllen High School graduate, was to be the headline guest at the CineSol Film Festival, scheduled to begin Sept. 11. But her plans to direct an modern-day adaptation of the film Hamlet could prevent that from happening, said festival director Henry Serrato.
“Hardwicke agreed to come down but dependent on upcoming projects. So, should a paid gig arise, there is a chance she might not make it,” Serrato said in an e-mail. “I have yet to find out if this new project will affect her visit to the Valley.”
It was announced earlier this week that Hardwicke would team up with Emile Hirsch, whom she directed in Lords of Dogtown, to create a supernatural thriller based on the William Shakespeare play.
