Good luck.

There is conflicting information about this new film version of *Othello*; some
sources (such as this week's TIME magazine) say it is to be directed by Kenneth
Branagh; others (such as VARIETY) say that the director will be Oliver Parker
(who also adapted the screenplay).  The only thing that seems clear is that
Branagh is going to play Iago, Fishburne will play Othello, and the film will
be partially bankrolled by Branagh's production company.
 
Also, I believe that the McKellen *Richard III* is going to start filming next
month.
