Shakespeare & Cervantes Become Friends (January 4th, 2006):
See, now, here’s an intriguing premise for a movie that hopefully won’t come off like a sequel to “Shakespeare in Love.” Many fans and scholars know that there is an odd connection between the man who wrote Don Quixote and the man who wrote Hamlet. The lost Shakespeare play “Cardenio” is believed to have been based on a story by Cervantes. Both men even died on the same day (April 23, 1616).
This fictional story looks at what might have happened during the four years when Shakespeare disappeared from historical records.
I’ll keep an eye out for more news and gossip about this movie.
