The latest Variety has a review of the film Free Enterprise. In it, two
would-be film makers meet William Shatner who tells them that his
greatest goal is to make an epic musical production of Julius Caesar in
which he plays all of the parts. According to the review, the film
concludes with Shatner singing "one of the most original Shakespeare
homages ever offered."

Also, Lucas Arts computer game, The Curse of Monkey Island, has a scene
with two pirates doing a very fractured Romeo and Juliet.
