Coriolanus – Photo from the Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler Shakespeare film

Fiennes is directing as well as playing Caius Martius ‘Coriolanus’. Gerard Butler is Tullus Aufidius, Vanessa Redgrave is Volumnia and Brian Cox is Senator Menenius.
John Logan, the screenwriter behind The Aviator and Gladiator, wrote the script.
The production was first announced at last year’s Cannes film festival, where Fiennes was keen to present it as racy, exciting action thriller. “People who’ve read the script think it’s a page-turner,” he told Screen International. “I want it to be an edge-of-seat film.”
Looks like this updated version of the play should be very cool.
