O Brave New World!

I’ve thought about it, and decided that this news that Ridley Scott and Leonardo DiCaprio teaming up to do a new Brave New World movie counts as Shakespeare news.

While it’s true that the title comes from our beloved Miranda in The Tempest (“O brave new world that has such people in it!”), the book itself if you’ve never read it has quite a bit of Shakespeare.

I'd like to say I’m looking forward to it, but I’ll have to refresh myself a bit on the story and what their plans are.  Wasn’t Gattaca awfully close to this one?
