Film company takes Shakespeare's Macbeth to the streets

We're all familiar with Shakespeare, and his works from the 16th century.

Now a film company in Northamptonshire has given one of his tragedies a modern twist and taken it to the streets.

It's a re-work of Macbeth, but not as you know it.

The film should be ready for the big screen by Autumn - any profits going towards future projects.

The cast and crew are a mixture of professionals and volunteers.

The project, run by 'Screen Northants' aims to get people from different backgrounds into the creative industries.

There are roles in front and behind the camera and any profits will go back into future film projects.
