Get ready Gerard Butler fans: The Scottish hunk is going back to the ancient world in Ralph Fiennes‘ movie version of Shakespeare’s most violent play, “Coriolanus”.

However, 300 buffs, eager to catch a glimpse of Gerard’s six—pack, might not see as much of the Ugly Truth actor as they’d like, since this is a contemporary adaptation of the violent political drama.

Gerard, 39, will play Tullus Aufidius, commander of the Volscian army from Shakespeare’s play, while Ralph, 46, will take the title role.

The hot Scot joins a cast that includes William Hurt and Vanessa Redgrave in Ralph’s directorial debut.
