Comedy

3. Why should this screenplay be made into a movie?

Actually, I believe it could be turned into a great TV series similar to the old TV show “Meeting of the Minds” hosted by Steve Allen in which he gathered a number of people from history and had them engage in conversation about topical issues of the day, except in this instance use characters from Shakespeare’s plays and have them meet and either go at with each other, or carry on a discussion about a subject, such as the subject of murder with Othello, Iago, Richard III, and Macbeth as guests.

Historic parody.

Procrastination

Very easy to use and follow.
