A Midsummer Night’s Dream: New trailer and promotional photos
A Midsummer Night's Dream Movies

The enduring charm of William Shakespeare’s classic comedy “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” has translated to innumerable adaptations over the years, including big screen outings like the popular 1999 Michael Hoffman feature and even, oddly enough, the 2015 animated film “Strange Magic.” More than four centuries since its original creation, the story of befuddled and betwixt friends and lovers who are literally bewitched during a wild night in the forest is as fun (and funny) as ever. Now, it’s getting another update, this one from first-time filmmaker Casey Wilder Mott, who has translated the tale into a delirious-looking Hollywood farce.

The film stars Rachael Leigh Cook as Hermia and Lily Rabe as her best friend Helena, along with Finn Wittrock as Demetrius and Hamish Linklater as Lysander, both of whom are consumed with love for Hermia (even though Helena is in love with Demetrious, it’s tangled). Mott’s cast also includes Paz De La Huerta as Hippolyta, Avan Jogia as Puck, Ted Levine as Theseus, poet Saul Williams as Oberon, singer-songwriter Mia Doi Todd as, Titania and Fran Kranz as Bottom.

The new film is set in contemporary Los Angeles — Hermia is even introduced as a “starlet” and Demetrius is a bonafide hustler — and offers up some clever sight gags (keep an eye out for that standoff between Helena and Demetrius) and what appear to some smart observations about Hollywood itself. This time, with more naughty woodland nymphs to make things really weird.

Check out our exclusive trailer for “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” below.

Our gallery was update with screencaptures from the trailer, a new poster and 4 new stills. Check out:

Finn Wittrock joins ‘Last Black Man in San Francisco’ cast
Last Black Man in San Francisco

It’s Finn’s year! Wittrock has joined the cast of ‘Last Black Man in San Francisco.’ a drama that reteams Brad Pitt’s Plan B banner with A24. The two previously collaborated on the Oscar-winning Moonlight.

Joe Talbot is directing the feature that is inspired by events in Fails’ life and is based on a short the two made in 2017.

In a timely tale involving race and gentrification, Last Black Man tells of the story of a man (Fails) and his oddball best friend (Majors) who are living in San Francisco’s last and fast-dwindling Black neighborhood. They hatch a plan to buy back the  Victorian home that belonged to the man’s grandfather, searching for belonging even as they feel the city is leaving them behind.

Danny Glover, Tichina Arnold, Rob Morgan, Mike Epps, Finn Wittrock and Thora Birch round out the cast.

‘Write When You Get Work’ Clip
Write When You Get Work

In a new clip from the Stacy Cochran’s Write When You Get Work, DEADLINE gave a taste of the Manhattan-set drama starring Emily Mortimer (The Newsroom), Finn Wittrock (American Horror Story) and Rachel Keller (Legion).

The film follows Ruth Duffy (Keller) an assistant at a pricey school for girls in Manhattan who is barely getting by. She is managing to move beyond the trouble and loss of her teenage years. Jonny Collins (Wittrock) is working local jobs and lives as a shady thief near the Throgs Neck Bridge in the Bronx. Jonny was obsessed with Ruth in high school and after years apart, the two cross paths and he infiltrates her life with the unwitting involvement of Nan and Steven Noble (Mortimer, James Ransone).

Written and directed by Cochran with cinematography from Oscar-winner Robert Elswit (There Will Be Blood), the movie premiered last week at SXSW.
