William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus was adapted and modernised into a film by Ralph Fiennes, also known for his roles as Voldemort and M in Harry Potter and James Bond franchises, respectively.

Coriolanus (2011). Directed by Ralph Fiennes. Starring Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave, Brian Cox, Jessica Chastain.
