They've all three been hot tickets in London's theatreland in recent years, and they'll all be coming to a screen near you soon ... though with a few cast changes. Gwyneth Paltrow will reprise her Donmar Warehouse role in David Auburn's Tony Award-winning Proof, but will be newly joined by Welshman Anthony Hopkins as well as Hollywood young gun and Whatsonstage.com Best Newcomer (for This Is Our Youth) Jake Gyllenhaal in John Madden's film version. And for Mike Nichols' film of Patrick Marber's Olivier Award-winning Closer, Brit boys Jude Law and Clive Owen will entangle and disentangle themselves with Hollywood's Natalie Portman (The Phantom Menace, Attack of the Clones, Where the Heart Is). Both of those film releases are slated for 2004. More immediately, Neil LaBute's screen version of his play The Shape of Things - which once again stars Briton Rachel Weisz alongside Americans Gretchen Mol, Paul Rudd and Fred Weller who created their roles at the Almeida before transferring to New York - will receive its UK premiere next month. LaBute is coming over to promote it as part of the London Film Festival. He'll be giving a talk on 1 November 2003, ahead of its general release later in the month.
