Connelly and Hoffman make move for Macbeth
Todd Louiso, better known for his acting than his directing, will direct the adaptation of the Scottish play.
He has appeared in front of the cameras in The Rock, Jerry Maguire and High Fidelity, whilst his sole directorial roles came with Love Liza and The Fifteen Minute Hamlet, in which Hoffman also appeared.
Connelly, who has appeared in Hulk, A Beautiful Mind and Requiem For A Dream, is expected to play the role of Lady Macbeth.
Meanwhile, Hoffman is likely to perform as Macbeth, though his versatility in such successful films such as The Big Lebowski, The Talented Mr. Ripley and Cold Mountain, could lend him to other roles within the project.
The film is due to go in to production at the end of this year.
