Four months ago, we reported that Ethan Hawke would reunite for his Hamlet director Michael Almereyda for another modern spin on the Bard’s work.  This time, they’ve teamed up for one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known works, Cymbeline.  In the play, the story is about [per Yahoo! Movies] “the impossible love between Imogen (Dakota Johnson) and Posthumus (Penn Badgley), and on the conniving influence of the Queen (Milla Jovovich) on her husband, King Cymbeline (Ed Harris).”  The new adaptation was reportedly “in the vein of Sons of Anarchy and Baz Luhrmann‘s Romeo + Juliet, and is an epic battle between dirty cops and a drug-dealing biker gang set in a corrupt 21st century America.”  The trailer has now come online, and it looks like Amereyda has delivered on that promise in an effective and exciting manner.

Hit the jump to check out the trailer.  The film also stars Anton Yelchin, John Leguizamo, and Delroy LindoCymbeline currently has no U.S. release date.
