The Other Boleyn Girl

Ok, the link above is nothing but pictures of Natalie Portman and Scarlett Johansson, the stars of the movie (oddly, as I write this, a commercial for the movie just came on tv...)   But I found the link because they'd tagged it Shakespeare.

Other than a straightforward Henry VIII connection, does anybody know a particular reason to think that this movie will have anything Shakespeare related?  I notice (via Wikipedia) that Sandy Powell, the costume designer, also did Shakespeare In Love.  Not that that'll mean anything  :).

Oh, and here's an Amazon review of the book that takes the author to task for being less than subtle about the fate of Anne Boleyn, claiming that anybody who's read their Shakespeare knows exactly what happens to her.
