New Shakespeare Biopic

Will, a 10-part biopic which follows a young William Shakespeare in Elizabethan London, has been bought by US cable network Pivot, and will be shot in England. It will be co-produced Endor Productions, and has been written by Craig Pearce, who also had a hand in writing the films Strictly Ballroom (1992) and Moulin Rouge! (2001). The part of Shakespeare has not yet been cast.
