The A24/Apple film is featuring actor Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand in lead roles. They are joining ‘The Harder they Fall’ and ‘The Power of the Dog’ in the London line-up so far.

Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth is all set to close the 65th BFI London Film Festival.

The A24 and Apple film is written and directed by Coen and starring Denzel Washington, Frances McDormand, Bertie Carvel, Alex Hassell, Corey Hawkins, Harry Melling, Brendan Gleeson and Kathryn Hunter. The film will receive its European premiere on October 17 at the Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, with Coen expected to attend.

Said to be a fierce adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic story of murder, madness, ambition and wrathful cunning, The Tragedy of Macbeth joins the already announced London Film Festival opener, Netflix’s Western The Harder They Fall, and Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog, which is getting a gala screening. The full program will be unveiled on September 7.

“Shakespeare belongs to the world but comes from Britain,” said Coen, who produced the film alongside McDormand and Robert Graf. “Having borrowed your cultural patrimony and having had the great good luck to work with a few of your most brilliant actors, I’m honored to bring this movie to the London Film Festival for its European premiere.”

The festival director Tricia Tuttle said: “We fell in love with Joel Coen’s adaptation of Shakespeare’s Scottish play. Poised in a magical space between theatre and cinema, this is a stunning production. Bruno Delbonnel’s silvery monochrome photography captures the moody almost expressionist sets from designer Stefan Dechant and Carter Burwell has written a spell-casting score. And while the ensemble cast – including many U.K. talents – is thoroughly excellent, Frances McDormand and Denzel Washington mesmerize as the couple whose political ambition proved their fatal downfall.”

The 65th BFI London Film Festival runs October 6-17.
