In class today, one of my students told me about a blurb in the present issue
of _Entertainment Weekly_ on two movies to be released in December. One is the
Fishburne/Branagh _Othello_; much to the relief of some members of the list
(remembering the shock expressed a few months ago) Uma Thurman apparently will
not be Desdemona, but rather Irene Clark will play the role (I didn't see the
article, so I'm not entirely sure on this).  The other is a version of
Richard III_, which, following the "let's-cast-Americans-to-get-people-
in-the-seats" trend, includes Annette Benig and Robert Downey, Jr. in the cast;
again, I didn't see the article, so I don't know what roles they're playing.
These movies are due to be released on the 15th and 22nd of December.
