Gerard Butler will reportedly star in Ralph Fiennes’ directorial debut Coriolanus.


The actor has signed to star opposite Fiennes in what is being billed as a contemporary version of Shakespeare’s Rome-set political and family drama. Butler will play Tullus Aufidius, commander of the Volscian army from Shakespeare’s play.


Set to begin shooting in Serbia in March, Butler will be joined by William Hurt, Eddie Marsan, Jessica Chastain and Vanessa Redgrave.
