Fleming’s ‘Hamlet 2’ added to Sundance

Comedy stars Catherine Keener, Elisabeth Shue

Andrew Fleming’s “Hamlet 2” has been added to the Sundance Premieres section.

Starring Steve Coogan, Catherine Keener, Elisabeth Shue, Amy Poehler, and David Arquette, the comedy is about a high school drama teacher who writes a musical sequel to the Shakespeare play in order to save the drama department.

“It is not unusual for us to add films to our lineup — especially very funny films which we know will have immense appeal,” said Geoffrey Gilmore, Director, Sundance Film Festival. “Hamlet 2 fits the bill perfectly.”

The festival also announced the New Frontier on Main venue, which will house multimedia installations, performances, and panel discussions to complement the Frontier film section. New Frontier artists will use emerging technologies to explore alternatives forms of narrative.
