Joseph Fiennes: I'm focusing on TV now
According to Digital Spy, the Bafta-nominated actor, who has starred in hits such as Shakespeare in Love and Elizabeth, told the Radio Times that he believes TV is producing better quality dramas.
"I look at the quality of drama and writing on television and I look at the generic, formulaic, cliched five acts of film, and I kind of go, 'Which would I rather watch?'," he said.
The actor also suggested that television is becoming more like the cinema now as people have big plasma screens and surround sound systems.
Fiennes will hit TV screens in the UK this weekend in the new show Camelot.
He stars alongside Jamie Campbell Bower, Tasmin Egerton and Peter Mooney in the services, which will air on Channel 4.
The star also appeared in FlashForward in 2009 and 2010, which netted a Primetime Emmy.
