JULIE TAYMOR's "The Tempest"
For Julie Taymor's latest film, she returns to her first work on stage, Shakespeare's The Tempest though in this adaptation, Prospero has been cast as a woman, Helen Mirren. Her earlier adaptation of Titus Andronicus, Titus (also by Shakespeare) is among my favourite films so I am anticipating great things from this.
The Tempest will premiere at the Venice Film Festival in September with general release scheduled for 10 December 2010.
