    An impressive cast is being assembled by director Julie Taymor for the big-screen adaptation of William Shakespeare's The Tempest, a play that mixes romance, politics, and the supernatural. Taymor is twisting the English classic by changing the gender of the lead character Prospero. Helen Mirren will star as Prospera, the female version of the Prospero, who reigns over a magical island where a shipwrecked crew of her enemies tries to wreak havoc.

    Jeremy Irons, Djimon Hounsou, Alfred Molina, and Felicity Jones have all been cast in the film, which is scheduled to begin shooting in November in Hawaii. Miramax has acquired the rights for all English-speaking regions.
