Margot Robbie is set to step into the producer’s chair with a new take on Shakespearean told from a female perspective.
The untitled project will be led by a female creative team who will produce ten standalone episodes, each based on a celebrated work of Shakespeare updated to comment on our modern, global society. Margot Robbie with her LuckyChap Entertainment company will be working with the Australian Broadcasting Company with production
The ten episode series will feature female writers/writer directors to update the Bard’s works with unique and distinct voices, and reflect different cultures and areas. Production is set to begin later this year.
“We are thrilled about this Australian partnership as an opportunity to showcase unique, distinctly female voices in writing, and to demonstrate the high quality of the Australian film and television industry,” LuckyChap said in a statement. “The project will share diverse points of view, from writers representing the different cultures and areas within Australia, which many would not readily associate with works of Shakespeare.”
