Something tells us next year’s Oscars may have a tinge of Booshdom, as two familiar faces are set to appear in historical thriller Anonymous this Autumn.
The film, which hinges on the question of who really wrote William Shakespeare’s plays and sonnets, is to be released on September 30th 2011. Directed by Roland Emmerich of Independence Day fame, it stars Vanessa Redgrave, Rhys Ifans, David Thewlis, Joely Richardson, Jamie Campbell Bower, Rafe Spall and Sir Derek Jacobi, alongside TVO’s very own Tony Way and Bunny And The Bull star Edward Hogg.
Way plays poet Thomas Nashe in the film, whereas Hogg appears as Robert Cecil, the First Earl of Salisbury. The latter can be glimpsed several times during the trailer. This is also the first of two films this year set to feature Tony Way alongside Joely Richardson, as imdb reports that he will also be appearing in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo in December.
You can view the trailer below, and we’ll naturally be bringing you more details closer to release.
