Despite this April 23 marking 400 years since his death, Shakespeare is still going strong, with some of our favorite stars lining up to play his characters.

Benedict Cumberbatch and Judi Dench are due to star in the next cycle of The Hollow Crown; former Doctor Who writer Russell T Davies has turned his attention to A Midsummer Night’s Dream; while The Force Awakens star Oscar Isaac has just announced he’ll play Hamlet off Broadway next year.

As well as all that, new comedy Bill opens this Monday (April 11) for one night only. From the makers of Horrible Histories, the film imagines what the future Bard of Avon might have gotten up to and which characters he might have met in his so-called “lost years” before he became a playwright.
