Anonymous MoviePlot:
"Set in the political snake-pit of Elizabethan England, Anonymous speculates on an issue that has for centuries intrigued academics and brilliant minds ranging from Mark Twain and Charles Dickens to Henry James and Sigmund Freud, namely: who was the author of the plays credited to William Shakespeare? Experts have debated, books have been written, and scholars have devoted their lives to protecting or debunking theories surrounding the authorship of the most renowned works in English literature. Anonymous poses one possible answer, focusing on a time when cloak-and-dagger political intrigue, illicit romances in the Royal Court, and the schemes of greedy nobles hungry for the power of the throne were exposed in the most unlikely of places: the London stage."

What do you think of Rhys Ifans int he movie Anonymous? Does he look the part?

Anonymous Movie

Director Roland Emmerich is working on Anonymous, an upcoming drama movie starring Rhys Ifans: it's political thriller about who actually wrote the plays of William Shakespeare (there's indeed a theory that claims that William Shakespeare's works were actually written by Edward de Vere). Besides Rhys Ifans the film is also starring David Thewlis and Vanessa Redgrave. The movie Anonymous will be released on September 30, 2011.

MTV met with Rhys Ifans a few months ago, and the actor talked about Anonymous:

"It's a story that asks the question and goes a long way to answering it: the theory, conspiracy theory if you like, that William Shakespeare was not necessarily the author of all, if any, of his works. So it will put a glorious wrench in... the English-speaking world of academia, which I have always endeavored to do, since I was a schoolchild."
Actor Rhys Ifans

The story of the film will go beyond the simple literary conspiracy, the story is indeed set against the backdrop of the succession of Queen Elizabeth I (Vanessa Redgrave) and the Essex Rebellion against her:

"It's an historical thriller because it's about who will succeed Queen Elizabeth and the struggle of the people who want to have a hand in it. It's the Tudors on one side and the Cecils on the other, and in between is the Queen. Through that story we tell how the plays written by the Earl of Oxford ended up labelled' William Shakespeare'."
Director Roland Emmerich

Also we may expect an impressive reconstitution of London circa 1599 (no wonder, since Roland Emmerich is a visual effects expert).

Anyway, more details about the movie Anonymous soon!
