I don't know if it's been noticed before, but Orson Welles' "Touch of
Evil" (1958) has a lot of overlap with "Othello."

The recent "Ten Things I Hate About You" is a reworking of "The Taming
of the Shrew."

In the British television series "Blackadder II," the episode entitled
"Head" shares plot elements with "Measure for Measure," while "Bells"
takes from "Twelfth Night."

"The Godfather" has elements of "King Lear" but structurally it is more
similar to "1 Henry IV."  "The Godfather Part II" has loose connections
to "Macbeth."
