Sean Bean and Tilda Swinton are set to star in "Come Like Shadows," an adaptation of Shakespeare's "Macbeth" that is slotted to shoot in Scotland in late fall reports Variety.
A traditional period piece designed for a contemporary audience, John Maybury ("The Jacket") will direct a script adaptation by Vincent Regan. Bean will play Macbeth, a role he essayed in London's West End three years ago, and Swinton will play his wife Lady Macbeth.
Steven Soderbergh is aboard as executive producer. Luc Besson also is part of the mix, with the film set to use his EuropaCorp post-production facility in Normandy, France.
