Courtney Love to Play a Wicked Woman in New Shakespearean Thriller

+

Courtney Love is having a big year. Earlier this fall, Hole’s Pretty On The Inside turned 25, she’s gearing up to release her second collection for Nasty Gal later this month, and now she’s been cast in a new Lifetime original series called A Midsummer’s Nightmare.

An adaptation of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the psychological thriller will follow four young lovers as they “steal off into the woods,” where things quickly turn dark. Love apparently plays a wicked woman who helps turn the foursome’s trip into a nightmare. No release date has been set, but the pilot began filming in Canada earlier this week.

Though we’re not the biggest Shakespeare fans, we can’t wait to see Courtney Love go full psycho once again.
