Coriolanus Film Set Gerard Butler on the film set coriolanus

Film production for Coriolanus the movie, has finished in Serbia.

Gerard Butler is covered in fake tattoos in this role, including a religious figure on his right bicep, and the words Volsci on his left bicep.
The presence of tattoo markings on Gerard Butler’s body is of symbolic significance in this movie. The religious image on his left bicept is a powerful reminder, of Tullus’s life-time commitment to his religion and faith.

The word ‘Volsci’ on his right bicept, defines Tullus’s identity. ‘Volsci’ refers to people of ancient Italy whose territory was conquered by the Romans in the fourth century B.C.

We have also acquired two concept art frames from the movie Coriolanus. The concept art provides us with a real taste of the fighting and rioting scenes expected in the movie.
