Butler plays Tullus Aufidius in the war drama, Coriolanus. Adapted from William Shakespeare’s tragedy of the same name, this film is set in modern-day times, and tells the story of a general’s vengeance on a city that has banished him. His revenge is so deep that he joins forces with his once mortal enemy to take the city. Co-starring Ralph Fiennes.
You always have your different reasons for choosing your roles… This came along and I thought, ‘well you know what, I’m not exactly known for my Shakespeare.’
