As promised, this adaptation of the Shakespeare classic co-produced by Apple TV + and A24 will be in black and white.
“By the pricking of my thumb, something wicked this way comes.” It is by this tirade of the classic of Macbeth, by William Shakespeare, that Joel Coen tease his new film, which is directly inspired by the play published in 1623. The Tragedy of Macbeth will once again recount the tragic fates of Lord and Lady Macbeth, who will be played by Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand. Brendan Gleeson will play King Duncan, Harry Melling (The Lady’s Game) will be Malcolm III and Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre in NWA: Straight Outta Compton) will play Macduff in this co-production of Apple TV + and A24, which will be released in theaters in the United States at the end of the year, but directly in streaming in France, on Apple TV +, on January 14, 2022.
Joel Coen prepares Macbeth with Frances McDormand and Denzel Washington, but without his brother
As promised by film costume designer Mary Zophres, these first images are in black and white. And Ethan Coen doesn’t appear anywhere: half the duo behind Fargo, The Big Lebowski and No Country for Old Men does not participate in the film, leaving carte blanche to his brother Joel.
