Sir Kenneth Branagh will direct and star in a new production of Macbeth as part of next year's Manchester International Festival.

The production marks the actor's return to Shakespeare after more than a decade.

Sir Kenneth, who was knighted this month, has been seen on screen recently as troubled Swedish cop Wallander.

He previously directed and starred in an Oscar-nominated version of Henry V.
