Danielcraig_memoirshadrian_1881

Daniel Craig is all set to let go of his impeccable tux for ancient Roman robes as he steps into the role of bisexual ruler 'Hadrian' in his upcoming movie the Memoirs Of Hadrian. The Hollywood hottie will be seen playing the art loving roman ruler, who ruled from 117 to 138 AD and is famous for building the wall dividing Scotland from the Great Britain.

Brit director Boorman, who has been based in Ireland since the early 1980’s, will co-write the script along with Rospo Pallenberg, who previously penned Boorman’s King Arthur epic ‘Excalibur’ and ‘The Emerald Forest.’ The film will be shoot in Morocco, Rome and Spain.

omg.. i think alex pettyfer fits the looks of antinous brilliantly!
pity he can't act..

but he does look gorgeous!

"...Scotland from the Great Britain"? The correct term would be Scotland from England.

Actually neither Scotland nor England existed at the time. The correct terms would be Caledonia from the rest of Britannia Major.

And who will play Twinqus Antinous?

Seriously, it will be interesting to see how they handle the Bar Kokbar uprising. Simon Bar Kokbar was a messianic despot and most Jews would have been happy to simply have him killed, but the way ruthless manner in which the otherwise conciliatory Hadrian handled the rebellion turned him into Bar Kokbar into a hero of Jewish nationalism. I wonder if they will refer to Jerusalem as Aelia Capatolina and Herod's temple as the Temple of Jupiter, Juno, and Minerva?
