Most people have heard that Ralph Fiennes decided to film an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Coriolanus” in Serbia beginning next year. In the latest news, we’ve learned that during the Cannes Film Festival, the rights to screen “Coriolanus” were pre-sold to Greece, Portugal and France, and it was revealed that in addition to Ralph Fiennes, Vanessa Redgrave and William Hurt will be acting in the film. “Coriolanus” will be produced by Gabrielle Tana, who recently produced “The Duchess” with Ralph Fiennes and Keira Knightley, and has been an active supporter of the “Film in Serbia” campaign. The “Film in Serbia” project has been cooperating with Mr. Fiennes to help bring this production to Serbia.
