updated Dec. 2010 -Complete

A contemporary version of Shakespeare's dangerous political thriller.

The citizens of Rome are hungry. Coriolanus, the hero of Rome, a great soldier and a man of inflexible self-belief despises the people. His extreme views ignite a mass riot. Rome is bloody.

Manipulated and out-manoeuvred by politicians and even his own mother Volumnia, Coriolanus is banished from Rome. He offers his life or his services to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius. Coriolanus and Aufidius march on Rome intending to destroy the city. Volumnia appeals to her son. He tries to reject her but eventually breaks. Aufidius, feeling bitterly betrayed, brutally murders Coriolanus.


Music Score: Ilan Eshkeri scores Ralph Fiennes' Coriolanus

According to the composer's Facebook page, the score is in a minimalist contemporary style.

Ilan Eshkeri worked closely with Fiennes to create a unique score for this exceptional portrayal of Shakespeare's political tragedy. The minimalist and contemporary style of the score both contrasts with the rich Shakespearian language, while simultaneously complimenting the stark modern day setting of the film, and the heavy themes of pride, manipulation and betrayal.

The film will be directed by Ralph Fiennes who has the main role. Apart from Fiennes and Butler in "Coriolanus" which is a modern version of the well-know play by Shakespeare, William Hurt and Vanessa Redgrave will also be part of the cast. This will be Fiennes's direction debut and the famous actor said that he chose Butler for this role because he has already had a role in the same theatre play. Last year Fiennes visited Serbia twice in order to see the potential shooting locations. Buildings which have left the strongest impressions on Fiennes are The Palace of Serbia and IMT factory. He has also visited Deliblatska pescara, Petrovardin and the PINK film studio in Simanovci. During his second visit in November last year, Fiennes met Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dacic, who promised the famous actor to have the police forces, gendarmerie and cavalry at his disposal for the shooting.

"Coriolanus" is a tragedy by William Shakespeare, based on the life of the legendary Roman leader, Gaius Martius Coriolanus. This Roman general got the name Coriolanus after conquering the Volscian city of Corioles in 493 BC. Condemned as a traitor, he was banished.

I went there and most of the discussion was about how HOT he looked in the tattoos. No one seemed to want to discuss the symbolizism behind the tats. Is there a thread for that? V
