"My understanding was that the original conception for Stewart's film 
was to be modern dress/corporate"

According to various web postings it will be filmed in Vegas at the 
Venetian.  The latter is where Michael Jackson had his famous shopping 
spree accompanied by Martin Bashir.

He told the British Graduate Conference in June that it would be in 
modern dress, set in a Las Vegas casino, with McKellen as Antonio and 
Julia Stiles as Portia. Michael Almereyda was slated to direct at that 
point. I do not know if anything has changed since then but I'm glad to 
hear that it is going through because his enthusiasm for the project was 
very palpable.
