Penn Badgley and Dakota Johnson huddled up and took direction on Friday for their portrayal of lovers in the adaptation of the Shakespeare drama Cymbeline filming in New York City.
The 26-year-old Gossip Girl star portrays Posthumus in the tale of jealousy and betrayal, while 24-year-old Dakota plays Imogen.
The movie also features Ethan Hawke who has teamed up again with director Michael Almereyda, who helmed the 2000 version of Hamlet that starred Hawke as the troubled prince.

Dakota, the daughter of Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, was wearing a short floral print dress and brown sweater on the set.
The movie also features 24-year-old Anton Yelchin who was stomping about on an athletic field in an all-black ensemble with creepy white face make-up with black lips and eyes.
