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

Posted by LiveFor on April 12, 2010

Check out Ralph Fiennes in camo gear shooting in the Serbian city, Pancevo. It is for his adaption of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. It is all looking very Hurt Locker.

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.
