terezoulini Posted January 30, 2010 Report Share Posted January 30, 2010 I just finished reading the play and I'm already day dreaming about award speaches. Especially the last scene where Marcius and Aufidius have their face off and Aufidius kills Marcius is very powerful. I could so imagine both Ralph and Gerry in it, they're so perfect for these roles! The play itself seemed a bit short to me, I wonder how they are going to expand the script and still make justice to the work of the Bard. I also wonder if they are keeping the original language or if it's going to be modernised. I would imagine the latter because we already know that Ralph is going for a more modern look with machine guns and all. Can you imagine Gerry saying: "Whence comest thou? What wouldst thou? Thy name? " :-) Aufidius appears at about the middle of the play, I hope we get him a bit sooner in the film. I also wonder what look they have decided he is going for? Gamer buffiness sounds like a look that a general might have, but I'm not all too keen on that. 300 look is definitely out of the question; hardly anyt time to achieve it and I don't think Gerry would even consider it, too painful to get there; plus we don't want it either. Maybe a bit of Clyde? I wish I had seen Ralph's interpretation in the theatre, then I'd know more of what to expect. I have a friend who is a devoted RF and had seen the play many times in London and now she remembers nothing. :-( I guess she was too distracted by Ralph. And now, to cheapen what was so far a serious comment by a fan who is only interested in Ralph's and Gerry's craft, there is no s*x in the play. :-) There is some hope for Ralph's fans because Marcius' wife is an actual character depicted in the play, but there is no Mrs Aufidius. I mean he implies he is married but we see no wife. Darn, I was hoping for a good bye night before they march off to Rome, you know a la 300. Anyway, maybe the Director will be creative. :-) Theresa Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
