Film producer Roland Emmerich will begin filming Anonymous, (AKA Soul of the Age) a $28-million film about the Shakespeare authorship question in March 2010. Oxfordian researcher Robert Detobel said the announcement appeared this morning in the Berliner Morganpost in an interview by Peter Beddies: “Roland Emmerich dreht Shakespeare in Babelsberg” (Roland Emmerich shooting Shakespeare in Babelsberg). According to Detobel’s translation of the Morganpost interview that appeared on Nina Green’s e-mail list, Emmerich will film Anonymous before beginning work on his next blockbuster movie, titled 2012.
“Now I have jumped again on the debate about Shakespeare perhaps not being the author of the works ascribed to him, and that will be the stuff of my next movie. It will not be a big production. Rather a little pretty thriller,” Emmerich said.
