Hamlet 2: The Teen Comedy

Though this be madness, yet there is method in 't.
Variety brings us news of a little something called Hamlet 2 (yes, as in a sequel to Shakespeare's Hamlet), a film starring Steve Coogan and Catherine Keener. The project will be the first produced by Eric Eisner's (son of former Disney chief Michael Eisner) production company L+E.

What's the deal?
The movie is a high school comedy focusing on "a teacher who tries to save his drama department by writing a sequel to William Shakespeare's Hamlet." One of the co-writers is Pam Brady, who has written all sorts of funny (or at least half-funny) stuff like the "South Park" movie, Team America, and Hot Rod.

Could be cool.
As Cinematical points out, the teen romp 10 Things I Hate About You is based on another Shakespearean work (and if you can name the title you can win points!), and that's a fun movie. Maybe this will be hilarious and just as fun.

Now the question is, what's next? What Shakespearean will be fodder for another teen flick?

I hate Steve Coogan - every movie he has ever starred in has sucked!!

I'm curious, but I admit that I am skeptical. I did like 10 things I hate about you. I'll give this Hamlet 2 a try, but I'll rent it rather than see it in the theaters. I think a Midsummer's Night's Dream could make a great teen comedy.

Now to be fair I did like 10 Things I Hate About You. But, I'm sorry but Shakespeare used for some Hollywood teen film? There's a much better chance than not that it will be ridiculous.
