Comment:    Re: SHK 20.0561 Coriolanus Film

My own preference would be for Gerard Butler to stay in his native 
tongue, Glaswegian, for his upcoming role as Tullus Aufidius. He 
performed in Coriolanus a few years back [I don't know which role]. He 
has a law degree from Glasgow University; no mini-mind, that one.

Butler's oft-quoted as saying he's terrified of sounding non-Scottish to 
his countryfolk. Having recently visited [for the first time] Glasgow, I 
can understand his preference for Glaswegian.....and somewhat understand 
his terror. <g>

Do we know if Ralph Fiennes will be performing in the film as well as 
directing?  And do we know if much fiddling will be done with the text?
