Filed under: Kevin Spacey

Last time they collaborated, they made American Beauty. We’re going into this one very optimistically!

Kevin Spacey and Sam Mendes are joining forces once again, this time in the theatre for a production of William Shakespeare’s Richard III.

The play will open at the Brooklyn Academy of Music in New York, and will then make its way to London’s Old Vic theatre, where Kevin Spacey serves as artistic director.

Spacey will play the lead character, Richard III. Here’s what Kevin had to say about the opportunity:

"With such a remarkable character before me, I have a feeling this one is going to be a memorable experience."

More from Spacey on Mendes’ directing skills:

"Sam is one of the finest directors I have had the pleasure to work with and to gain this opportunity is beyond my wildest hopes.”

Mendes has been quoted as saying that Richard III is “a role I think Kevin is born to play.”

Looks like a wonderful collaboration in the works! We’re sure this will be fantastic!

Are U excited to see this American Beauty duo teaming up again?
