Voorhees Films has just completed the production phase of Billy Shakespeare, a full-length feature film, starring comedic talent Jason D. Johnson as William Shakespeare. This comedy of errors seeks to answer: What if Shakespeare never lived in the 1500s but lived in L.A. today peddling his screenplays? Renaissance and modern sensibilities clash when an all-male stage version of Macbeth and the low-budget film "The Taming of the Shrew" open simultaneously. The combustion makes “The Bard” the most controversial screenwriter in Hollywood. Director and writer Deborah Voorhees and her cast and crew seek the funds to take the film from the hard drive to the cinemas.
Private investors... took a lot of sweat.

We have a visual and color lock. Currently, we are working on the musical score, sound, and foley.
