Martin Scorsese teams up with British writer for epic take on the Romans

He [Hirst] says his dramas are not documentaries but the details are rooted in history: “Just like Shakespeare’s history plays, they only start with some historical facts, then the drama takes over. You can’t have both.”

I disagree. History has plenty of drama and doesn’t require artificially injecting it with pointless love triangles and sex. Its the big reason why this past season of Vikings was incredibly boring despite plenty of history to draw upon. I’m cautiously following this development.
