The photos show how the movie adaptation of the Shakespeare's tragedy will be set in modern time.
Kino Gallery has got its hand on several new images from "Coriolanus" which is adapted from William Shakespeare's work of the same title. Though the original story is based on legendary Roman leader, Gaius Marcius Coriolanus, the film will be set in contemporary time as seen in the pictures.
Some of the photos feature Ralph Fiennes as the titular character, and Gerard Butler who plays an army commander and nemesis of Coriolanus. Both are wearing army costumes in the stills. Moreover, some other images give a look at the battle scenes.
Beside starring in it, Fiennes will make "Coriolanus" as his first directing vehicle and produce it alongside John Logan, Gabrielle Tana, Julia Taylor-Stanley and Colin Vaines. Other cast members include William Hurt, Eddie Marsan, Jessica Chastain as well as Vanessa Redgrave. This drama thriller has not set a release date.
William Shakespeare's "Coriolanus" follows Roman military leader Caius Martius, who is banished from Rome. He offers his life or his services to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius. Coriolanus and Aufidius then march on Rome intending to destroy the city.
