Tennant's Hamlet To Be Made Into Film

DAVID TENNANT is planning to give fans another chance to see his short-lived stage performance of Shakespeare's HAMLET - a film version of the acclaimed play is in the making.
Tennant was forced to axe his West End run in the Bard's classic in December (08) after suffering a slipped disc and subsequently undergoing surgery to correct the condition.
He managed to recover in time to return to London's Novello Theatre for one week of shows - but many fans were left disappointed after failing to catch the actor in the title role.
And now Tennant is to show fans what they missed by reprising the part for a special movie.
Hamlet co-star Oliver Ford Davies, who played the role of Polonius, says, "We are intending to film it over two or three weeks in June. It won't be a full feature film as there isn't time but it will certainly be more than just the filming of the stage."
