A modernized version of William Shakespeare's Hamlet.
MPAA: Rated PG-13 for strong violence, thematic material, and language.
The only variations in this movie are:
The dialogue (From Shakespearean language to modernized 21st Century language, minus the slang and teenager mannerisms.)
The location of the story set in New York City, with the location “Denmark” being a large rich neighborhood in Manhattan.
Fortinbras is leader of a lower-class gang hellbent on invading the Denmark neighborhood and recovering their resources and homes, after a violent dispute between King Hamlet and Fortinbras broke out, resulting in King Hamlet winning and keeping his home.
Hamlet is a 30 year old man who was formerly a respected Military Sergeant loyal to anyone who followed his father King Hamlet, who was a General before his demise.
Rosencrantz is a happy-go-lucky recovering alcoholic after the war between Fortinbras and King Hamlet after witnessing the loss of his girlfriend.
Gertrude is strong-willed and beautiful, but appearances can be deceiving for a 50 year old queen on the inside.
Where the original Hamlet had a summer atmosphere, this version will have a cold and winter atmosphere, similar to The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo remake.
Claudius is more gruff and strict while showing little sign of guilt (except for the praying scene), attempting to cover up his crime at murdering King Hamlet.
The people of Denmark (Hamlet, Gertrude, Claudius, etc.) are American, while Fortinbras and the citizens of “Norway” are British.
