A Pythonesque Comedy about Shakespeare's Lost Years? Sure, Why Not.

They've still got openings for extras in the upcoming film Bill, described by writer Laurence Rickard as "a tale of murderous kings" and "a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth", that explores how Shakespeare went from unknown lute player to famous playwright.  “The joy of the lost years is we can tell a fun story without trampling on the facts. It gives us licence to take William Shakespeare on a truly ridiculous caper, yet end with him becoming the man the world knows.”

I wonder if I'll ever see this one come up again or it'll just sort of disappear into obscurity.
