The Tempest 2.0

I have a new movie to look forward to: an adaptation of Shakespeare's The Tempest directed by Across the Universe's Julie Taymor and starring Helen Mirren.

Mirren will be playing "Prospera" (rather than Shakespeare's Prospero), so I'm assuming this will be a fairly unconventional interpretation of the play. The always-excellent Djimon Hounsou will be Caliban, Felicity Jones (Catherine in the recent ITV adaptation of Northanger Abbey) will be Miranda, Ben Whitshaw (Bright Star's John Keats) will be Ariel, and Russell Brand will be... well, he'll probably still just act like Russell Brand, but technically he's playing Trinculo.
