My own modern interpretation of The Tragedy of Julius Caesar.
MPAA: Rated R for strong sexual content and nudity, violent images, and pervasive language.
- Whilst remaining true to the original dialogue and monologues of Julius Caesar, there will be more modernized dialogue and a little bit of the famous lines from the original play.
- The story will take place in New York City, Nevada, and Los Angeles.
- Julius Caesar is a mid-50's CEO of his own worldwide company Caesar's Roman Rise, which involves investing money from and into big or independent stocks. (Think of Donald Trump mixed with King Leonidas.)
- Caesar's Roman Rise also consists of mechanical engineering and locating oil found in other countries.
- Flavius and Murellus are both twin brothers who went broke after gaining bad tips from Caesar and are imprisoned after vandalizing his property as a message from the people who want to overthrow the rich.
- Brutus is Julius's right hand man and co-founder of the company who assumes that something is wrong with the company and believes that Caesar is corrupt with money and power.
- Antony remains loyal to Caesar but is diplomatic between taking sides with his mentor or Brutus and some of his men who want to take down Caesar and take all his money.
- Cassius is Caesar's rival in the stock market game and business politics; he often looks to Brutus to get inside information about how to overthrow Caesar and his company.
- Calpurnia is Caesar's charming but uppity wife with a strong desire for sex, money and power.
- Instead of the assassination towards Caesar being executed, it happens by accident: While Cassius is attempting to figure out the algorithms of Caesar's methods of investments, he pulls out a gun and shoots Caesar when he is caught by surprise by the latter and is forced to finish him off.
- Portia is Brutus's girlfriend who is against Caesar despite gaining some riches in her life. She later kills herself out of grief when she discovers that Brutus is framed by Antony for assassinating Caesar and is labeled as a “tyrant”.
- Octavius is Caesar's biological son who is more grounded and less egotistical unlike his father, and is acquaintances with Brutus and friends with Antony.
- After the death of Caesar becomes public, Octavius and some of his men begin to hunt the
- In a shocking twist, it turns out that it was Brutus who had planned for the decline of Caesar's company for several years as well as Cassius who started the company but the idea was stolen by Julius Caesar many years ago.
- The ghost of Caesar haunts Brutus, Cassius, and the other men involved in the conspiracy, forcing them to relocate to Nevada or California.
- Octavius, Antony, and some of their men take extreme measures into killing Brutus and Cassius by forming their own rebellion out of New York to look for the wanted fugitives.
- Octavius struggles with the ability between taking his deceased father's place in controlling the business or taking partial control of the company and his own developed business.
- Brutus and Cassius don't commit suicide; instead, they are killed by Antony without hesitation after a long police chase, the killings made live.
- The ending becomes ambiguous as Antony and Octavius get lost in thought and wonder if killing the people behind the conspiracy was really worth it and what will happen to Caesar's company and the future of the economy after the devastating loss.
