Emmerich casting now for March shoot

2012 director Roland Emmerich confirmed in an October 9 interview with Heather Newgen in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, that he is currently casting for a film about the Shakespeare authorship question (variously referred to as Anonymous and/or Soul of the Age) that he will begin to shoot March 22.

Newgen: What is it about?
Emmerich: It’s about how it came to be that William Shakespeare was not the author of his plays. It’s not Marlowe, it’s De Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford. It’s kind of like a political thriller. It’s about who will succeed Elizabeth and the cause of that thriller, the Essex Rebellion, we take on and we learn how the plays were written by somebody else.
