William Hurt, Vanessa Redgrave and Jessica Chastain have signed up to star in Ralph Fiennes's Coriolanus.

Fiennes's directorial debut is an adaptation of William Shakespeare's review of the way power corrupts, set during the beginning years of the Roman Republic, reports Variety. The English actor will also star in the lead role.

The Aviator writer John Logan is penning the script, while Julia Taylor-Stanley and Gabrielle Tana will produce.

Last month, it was announced that Fiennes has joined the cast of Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant's The Men At The Pru.
