Biography CLOSE THE FULL BIOGRAPHY

Although yet to be connected with the kind of box-office hit that establishes a director as a household-word, Richard Loncraine has demonstrated a wide versatility, directing comedy, poignant dramas, thrillers, psychodramas and spy films, leading up to Shakespeare's "Richard III" (1995) starring Sir Ian McKellen.

Notes

"When my wife, who is better read than I, suggests we go and see a Shakespeare play or film, my response is, "What else is playing?' I want to get over the 'what else is playing?' syndrome with ["Richard III"]. We should be able to reach the likes of me. I'm an educated film director, yet I've been nervous about going to see Shakespeare. But what I discovered is that Shakespeare wrote with a roller coasterof imagery, and I believe if he lived today, he'd be writing screenplays." -- Loncraine quoted in publicity material for "Richard III"
