Film Title: Anne in Avalon
Pitch: Shakespeare is getting depressed and lonely as he realizes he won’t be able to make it back to Avalon this spring, because King George has banned all travel to the country.

She has been royally invited to a court date with none other than king, to see a special performance only fit for a true “queen.”
Hook: It’s got Alicia Vikander and old-miss gets her dream date of a lifetime.

Subject: A nice film project for Alicia
Dear sirs and madam,
You are all invited to our royal wedding, but must attend the premiere first. If you do so wish to attend, remember one thing, we will get Mrs. Anne Hathaway’s smile on film…
