Daniel Craig’s Macbeth Will Be Very Different To Denzel Washington’s Coen Movie

Daniel Craig says his upcoming stage performance of Macbeth will differ greatly from Joel Coen’s Denzel Washington-led film adaptation.

Daniel Craig assured audiences that his upcoming role in Macbeth would differ greatly from the Denzel Washington-led The Tragedy of Macbeth. A timeless story of madness, political ambition (and proper hand hygiene), Shakespeare’s Scottish play is first thought to be performed in 1606. There have been countless performances and renderings in the ensuing centuries. A notable recent adaptation was 2015’s Macbeth, starring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. The Scottish king has been portrayed by the likes of Laurence Olivier, Orson Welles, and Ian McKellan. Now Denzel Washington and Daniel Craig will be joining the impressive roster of actors to play the mad general-turned-king.

Joel Coen first announced his reimagining of the Scottish play in early 2019, with Washington and Frances McDormand joining the cast soon after.

Earlier this month, A24 revealed the trailer for The Tragedy of Macbeth, confirming the adaptation’s December release date.
