"Could anyone perhaps repost the URL for the article published on
Branagh's relinquishing of further plans to film Shakespeare? I no
longer have the message containing that information."

I couldn't access the Belfast paper once mentioned on SHAKSPER, so I
headed to the London Guardian site, which has a good search feature.

The article is still there at:

http://www.guardian.co.uk/Archive/Article/0,4273,4128751,00.html

However, the story has been contradicted by Mr. Branagh, according to a
post on a Shakespeare newsgroup, and incidentally by someone I know:

"I'm happy to pass along that in an Internet chat on February 15, Mr.
Branagh said the reports of his retirement from Shakespeare films have
been exaggerated.  He is currently working on a screenplay for an
adaptation of Macbeth and plans to hold a series of workshops with
actors involved this summer.  It is hoped the filming can be completed
by the end of 2002."

I think you can still read the thread at Google:

Hope this is helpful.

Peace and joy,
