Amazon Studios is partnering up with Scooter Braun and Channing Tatum to produce a YA musical adaptation of William Shakespeare's iconic character Lady Macbeth.
Details surrounding the plot of the film, which is set to be penned by S.J. Inwards, are being kept close to the chest by those involved, but sources report the story will focus on a teenage girl as she struggles to get a grip on her own mortality while also contending with the consequences of her ambition. It will take cues from Shakespeare’s tragic character, who was well-known for being a calculating woman and prodding her titular husband towards murder and war.
Braun, Scott Manson and James Shin will produce the untitled Lady Macbeth musical through SB Projects. Tatum will produce with his partners Reid Carolin, Peter Kiernan and Michael Parets via their banner, Free Association.
