To podcast or not to podcast, that is the question. Welcome back to this very Shakespearian episode of Not A Bomb. On this week’s show, Brad and Troy are joined by Cameron Sauer to discuss the sequel to the greatest tragedy of all time - Hamlet 2. That’s right, 400 years later Hamlet gets its proper sequel starring Steve Coogan and Elisabeth Shue.
A darling at the 2008 Sundance Film Festival, Hamlet 2 was purchased by Focus Features for a staggering 10 million dollars. Sadly, released as a summer film, Hamlet 2 was quickly forgotten and failed to recoup its production budget.
The Shakespeare bug completely grabs the podcast this week as the gang also tackles Kenneth Branagh’s 4-hour epic Hamlet, which also happens to be a theatrical bomb. This is basically just an excuse to rave about Kate Winslet’s performance as Ophelia.
Hamlet 2 is directed by Andrew Fleming and stars Steve Coogan, Catherine Keener, Amy Poehler, David Arquette and Elisabeth Shue.
