While being interviewed with Empire, Roland Emmerich revealed some of the casting that's been done on Anonymous. "We have Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Elizabeth; David Thewlis as William Cecil, old and young; and Rhys Ifans as The Earl Of Oxford. It’s a true English cast and I’m really proud of it. There’s 12 main characters and 20 or 30 other characters, and each of the characters is really good."

The director also spoke as to how he would describe the film's story. "It's a mix of a lot of things: it’s an historical thriller because it's about who will succeed Queen Elizabeth and the struggle of the people who want to have a hand in it. It's the Tudors on one side and the Cecils on the other, and in between [the two] is the Queen. Through that story we tell how the plays written by the Earl of Oxford ended up labelled 'William Shakespeare'."

During an interview for Roland Emmerich's next film 2012, Collider's Matt Goldberg got the skinny about the director's project after that: a historical mystery called Anonymous. "It’s about how it came to be that William Shakespeare was not the author of his plays," explained Emmerich. "It's not [Christopher] Marlowe, it's [Edward] de Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford. It's kind of like a political thriller. It's about who will succeed Elizabeth and the cause of that thriller, the Essex Rebellion, we take on, and we learn how the plays were written by somebody else."

Emmerich says that the plan is to have Anonymous' first day of filming be March 22, 2010. "The writer is John Orloff (A Mighty Heart) and he's been working on the script for two years before I got involved and he did a really, really good job and I just discussed it with several actors who are very knowledgeable about that time and I’m really pleased how accurate it is," the Independence Day filmmaker added. "Naturally, for dramatic reasons you sometimes alter facts but it's pretty well-researched."
