Clive Owen, Tom Felton, George MacKay Join Daisy Ridley's 'Ophelia'.

Clive Owen, Tom Felton, George MacKay, and Devon Terrell have joined the cast of Daisy Ridley’s romantic tragedy "Ophelia."

Producer and Covert Media CEO Paul Hanson made the announcement Tuesday. The film begins principle photography later this month on location in Prague with Claire McCarthy directing.

The movie is set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice as a re-imagining of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet."

Ridley portrays the title character as the most trusted lady-in-waiting to the Queen, played by Naomi Watts. She soon captures the attention of Prince Hamlet and a forbidden love blossoms. As war brews, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore Castle apart from within.

Owen will play Claudius, MacKay will play Hamlet, Felton will play Laertes, and Terrell will play Horatio.
