Modern Take on Shakespeare’s ‘As You Like It’ Rides to Digital March 19, Disc April 9 From Random Media

As You Like It, a contemporary Western retelling of Shakespeare’s classic story with an all-male cast, will come out on Digital HD and VOD March 19 and DVD April 9 from Random Media.

The film, from writer-director Carlyle Stewart and shot entirely in Death Valley using the bard’s original language, is a romantic adventure in which the courtship of characters Rosalind and Orlando play out against a backdrop of rivalry, banishment and exile.

The all-male cast — as was the Shakespearean stage tradition and emphasizing themes and ideas in the original work that have been lost in modern adaptations — includes Grant Jordan, Zach Villa, Joseph Haro, Stephen Ellis, Tom Bower and Graham Greene.
